wangin' the tail

Would an Eaton diff help with the a$$ pucker I get when the tach hits 3500rpm? The other evening in third gear the rear end tried to pass the front end. This happens frequently, at close to 70 mph, and is not a comfortable felling.
Would the Eaton posi make this thing go staighter. I'm tired of sliding off the road everytime I want to have fun.

With your suspension mods, it sounds like you just wanted to brag a little What's fun about going straight?

Sounds like some better tires are in order. With 275's and a procharger, you would probably need some R compound tires to hold it.

275 street tires are not going to hold that much HP on the street and not much better at the strip,but then of course you knew that didn't you?????????

R compounds would help, but does the Eaton posi work that much better than the stocker?. I would really like a full locker. I know they are a bugger to drive, because I've had two others.
The stocker feels like it loads and unloads which makes the rear end skate.

We wanna know! Mine has a bad habit of winging to the left on a hard launch but I'm used to it and correct it with no probs. I don't have the power either like OP has.

Still waiting on the wavetrac news!!

I'd try using the Nitto 555R drag radial tires in the rear if I were you (if you're not already using them). They wear faster than other tires, but they sure do grip much better than standard radial tires do. You just have to drive slow in the rain, otherwise you might find you and your car wrapped around a tree.

A spring tuning kit will help the stock posi with spinning more evenly.
You can also try draining the fluid and putting in some Torco with about 4oz of FM (maybe less)
The Truetrac is a good posi and does a good job of applying power to both tires evenly.
It may sound mute but also make sure you have the same air pressure in both tires.

Thanks
Chris
