Power to the ground

Having 250rwkw is great when the rear wheels are on a dyno.
How are you guys keeping the ute from sitting in one spot when you sink the boot? Does the traction control really take care of this problem completely?
After market gear ???
Your thoughts...

Mate!!!

Traction control.... no thank you!

as for the power...... mate.... as they all say... I never met a kilowatt I did not like.

seriously your right, it is so easy to light up the rears..... but hell with a little practice..... on the freeway.... time to overtake........ no contest

Re: Power to the ground

But how do the guys on here acheive 12s 1/4m in street utes and tyres.
How do they have limited wheel spin doing take off?
Obviously utes are more disavantaged with the rear end weight factor?
Do you stack weight in your ute while doing a time?

Re: Power to the ground

I have 265rwkws in a ute and run 12.7@109mph on street tyres (stock SP3000 at 20psi), I believe the utes have an advantage at the strip because of the "live" rear axle and the way it puts the power to the ground, however too much can be a problem with wheel spin when launching, I find that stalling to 2200-2300rpm too much and get excessive wheel spin, stalling to 1700-1800rpm not enough next outing I will try between 1950-2100rpm, with that and everything else going right I hope to run 12.5
