It's been awhile since I really gave the car a thrashing. Used to be if I didn't force the issue at least a little bit when I took her out I felt a bit cheated but I haven't heated her up for awhile. So before I came back home today I took her down by the Jr high where there aren't any house to speak of and lit her up a bit. Absolutely no traction through first and all the way through second. I wasn't sure until I let of the gas and felt it finally get some grip. The motor is an absolute beast. I'm sure if I ever did get traction the rear end would explode so it's probably a good thing. Just had to brag a little. Haters allowed.
I suppose way more tq with the 455 was enough to do it in. I'm in that boat already. The 4sp probably makes it even worse. I bought one of those rear end girdles that put some preload on the bearing caps. Maybe that will give me some wiggle room.
