the wheel hop and hook up issues are the reason i havent been to the track yet, im not experienced enough to keep the control.
I know an Upper control arm is a MUST
Check out this thread and watch the videos. its crazy:
you will be amazed at how much the stock upper control arm is responsible for the wheel hop.
I ordered the whiteline one from americanmuscle.com. it was about $240 with the forum discount and free shipping. It should be here on tuesday, ill let ya know what i think.
i also plan on getting the white line adjustable lower control arms and re location brackets.
you can get cheeper stuff but ive never heard a bad thing about whiteline, and i love their unique bushings.
Doing a burnout will absolutley get you better tractoin, it will make the tires more sticky.
Ive been advised against running slicks due to fear of breaking something. im not sure what the stock axles can handle and i cant afford to break one.
once i get the stuff done in the rear, ill be getting the ST coilovers so im expecting a dramatic reduciton in wheel hop.
if your on a budget, id at least get an upper control arm. if your planning on keeping your stock ride height then you wont need adjustable. but i would for sure get the arm and bracket.
