Isn't that something you have to tell us after you've found out one way or the other?

If you treat the throttle like a light switch, either off or full-on, it will be. But if you take the time to develop a little better "feel" for when traction is about to go away on you, it won't have to be.

What do you want to ultimately do with the car? Modding the car with no real goal in mind is pretty much wasting money and could be detrimental to your overall goal.

Also, what's your budget? How much you can and are willing to spend is going to be a big factor in what your next step is.

The stock lcas are a joke...for any type of performance driving...they are cheap and take a hour to install

I've seen videos of a high 12 with intake, tune, radials, 4.10s. I have frpp cams instead of radials and traction from a dig is nonexistent. I wish I had some tires, I'd be gettin it. haha I wanna do the suspension work as well but for now its just a DD. I wanna see it at the track soon.
