Okay so you are saying it is impossible to get a 2.4 60 ft and not spin? You either A dont drag race much at all, or B are just not very smart.
I have less then 250 whp + a Density altitude of 4500 ft above sea level which lowers power even more... put through an AOD automatic transmission with a 2600 rpm stall... My power doesnt hit hard til 3500 rpms...The car weighs 3500 lbs with me in it... and my 3.27 rear end gearing..
So decently heavy, low power, bad air, low stall, and short rear gearing, all means basically 0 power/torque on launch... Get it?
The car does not spin AT ALL on the strip.. I made 17 runs and I didnt spin one bit.. There just isnt enough torque getting to the tires to break traction... I would show you a video of it, but I forgot to put the memory card in my GoPro. So now think about what you are saying...
Would some drag radials help? Yes. Why though? They would help because the sticky tires would let me hit maybe 3000 rpm on launch... That is more than I can now because with my foot on the brake and the gas at 2600 rpms stitting still I start to do a burn out... As soon as I let off the brake and go the spinning stops and the car bogs.... Get it now?
