Definately sounds like something is wrong, best solution would be to install a 3.2L crank and a CFI setup, should fix that wheel spinning no worries :oo1: :MUha:

Its a Great thing unless you plan to street race all the time!!
If you do plan to, look into fitting some better rubber under the ass end.......wider ( not so good in the wet ) and a better compound.

Are your tyres bald?

Wider doesnt always mean not so good in the wet, my current directional tires are considerably wider than my last, but alot better in the wet... depends on what rubber you go for. More rubber in contact with the ground = better traction, wet or dry. It depends on the tires capacity to get rid of the water.... the balder, the worse it is.

Also depends on the quality of rubber too...

My old EA used to spin its wheels something shocking, and so did my current EF before I put on some decent shoes. Just dont buy the first tire you see under 80 bucks if you want to stop spinning and slipping...

im running Bridgestone G grids all round on my XF ute i used to be a goodyear bloke - used to have Eagle GT+4 all round in 215 and 225 sizes, and i used to bag up the 225's so easy, but now ive got the G grids in the same sizing and htey wont bag up unless im turning or on the white line so nice and grippy - and they are a great wet tyre can turn so much safer in the wet

Since getting my 17" AU2 Tick's I have been pretty hesitant to take off at the lights... I spin out also....

My mates XR is identical, however VCT with Rebel bodykit. Mabye his IRS weighs the back of the car down a bit... Does not spin out as much

Hey I used to be a good year GT+4 man as well...

Guess which tyres i just put on ? The 215/60/15 G-Grids as well.

They are a great tyre. Stick like sh*t on a blanket.

Cheers


Will

it seems GT+4's arent a good Falcon tyre the fronts used to slide out on me all the time when turning and the rears werent that grippy but in a mates dunny dore its a different story the fronts grip nicely and the rears hold just as nice ???

n e ways i was amazed at hte performance of the G grids wonderful tyre will definatley make em my next tyre (will have at least 16's on my next car so cant use my cirrent tyres :( doh')
