Ok I have a big Problem now..........
#1309365 - 08/30/06 04:56 PM

I have a serious issue that rose today. After tuning the car at 12 psi with Tom(waromnger) I was having a little problem with traction in third and 1st and 2nd forget full throttle unless you want to replace 225 tires every month. I picked up my buddy to go take a ride oh did that make a big difference the extra 200lb made my tires grip in third not power shifting at all either.

So today Warmonger told me to turn up the boost to 14psi. Ok then I really realized we have a big problem now. I can't not no way catch grip in thrid now only in fourth. Sucks big time because third was my funniest gear now it is fourth gear.

It just isn't fun to drive when you have to baby the throttle on a run. I bet most wish they had my problem ........ but beleive me it get annoying. when 1st through third is useless till you get to 80 mph. All I can say is we need to start now researching on how to fabricate a wide body kits that looks good so we can use the power.

Never did I think I would have third being that much of an issue on traction. Well If that gives you any idea of what power I am generating it is alot I will try to get you a video tonite of the problem we face.

You can roll your fender lips and pull the fenders (not sure that's the right term...), get the perfect offset wheels and you might be able to get 245+ on there. It would just take some serious effort

I thought this thread was going to be like the one Swazo started about his "problem." I was all "oh no!" when I saw the thread, and thought another hoss 3L Turbo had met its maker.

And yes, I do wish I had your problem!

why not turn the boost back down so you have the required traction that suits your driving style ??

I've got a set of new 245's that I'd sell you. I know thes will fit on a contour since I had another set of the same tires on my car.

I feel your pain. I only have a moderate problem myself. 1st and most of 2nd are pretty useless at full throttle. I feel great pity for you turbo folks that can't even use 3rd gear as well. At least my 3rd gear pulls hard and does not lose traction.

Once I get this traction issue resolved, I don't forsee having a problem holding in 3rd.. or 2nd...

But, Burrita, I COMPLETELY FEEL FOR YOU!

Another reason FWD sucks.

But like everyone else said, its time to get some fat tires.
