Just wanted some opions of what might be happening here...car launches good, but about 10 feet out it picks the front wheels up. Last year they always came up out of the hole. I had the converter freshened during the off season. I'm thinking it is slipping on launch, and then finally locking up 10 feet out? 60 foot also dropped off from 1.36/1.38 to 1.44's - 1.47's.

Thanks,

Ron

I have never had any problems with tire spin as long as I have owned the car as the 1.36 short time shows. The difference between last year and this year is the converter. I have tried the car away from the track a few times, and with tire spin on the street, it starts to go sideways immediately. I also have the tires screwed to the rims.

Mine does the same thing. In my case, it is from the converter being a little too tight, and a few feet out, it starts making some useable power and lifts the wheels slightly.
