    I am in desperate need of some traction. There are a number of traction aids available, who has used them and what experiences do you have?

    This is for use at the track on MT ET Streets. I trapped 139.67 mph last night but was spinning my tires thru the entire 1/4 all the way across the last beams.

    and yes, I am FWD

    AWD or RWD. Or if you want to stay FWD (and with that trap speed, I'm guessing you have a lot of money into the car) get a wheelie bar out the back to artificially extend your wheelbase.

    Yeah, staying FWD, wondering if anyone has experience with tire preps to help traction also.

    wheelie bars will extend the wheelbase and help with traction.

    You could also go with a limited slip setup or, spool it.

    Taller/widers slicks, wheelie bars as mentioned, some sort of LSD again as mentioned, dual stage boost controller (less boost in 1st gear) a better suspension setup (higher spring rates in the rear so less squat, or airbags)
