    How are you getting your hellcT to hook up???
    I have the A8 and summer tires and All i do is spin and or wheel hop or both.
    Even a roll start at 50 mph , they wanna break loose.
    I am on my second set of rear tires at 4000 miles.
    I just want to hook up now.
    Street Drag tires for street use is not that great because you have to run very low air pressure so during turns on the street , they break loose if u r not going in a straight line.
    Has anyone come up with a traction bar kit like the ole days.
    If you are spinning , you are NoT winning !!

    First, don't turn off traction control. Leave it on. It helps. Second, summer tires (and some are not) don't work well below 40 - 50 degrees or there about. If it's cold where you are, you might try all season tires. They work better in lower temperatures. I've found if I roll on the throttle rather than jam my foot to the floor I get less spin and more forward movement. If you want to go faster, you have to proceed slowly.

    not trying to be rude, but just don't push your foot as far down on the gas pedal or as quickly on the gas pedal, roll into it.

    Maybe that's what the Black Keys is for? Use the red one when you want to hop and the Black one when not. I'm not even going to bring up valet mode! :rolleyes:

    That's debatable, they certainly do not eliminate it, especially with stock P Zeros. Car seemed better with M/T DR's with the arms.
