You're not SUPPOSED to break traction. He may have some serious meats on there, or his skill at not breaking traction is enough. Or (and probably more likely) he has more money invested in tires than you and I make in a month, and doesn't want to burn them up

they are smoked off street tires for one. it also appears that they are filled to max psi. anyone that has had torque before will tell you that that'* a bad combo for the street... then again, what do i know?

Definitely a lumpy cam. And he never really got on it, he turned about every corner, and the scream would have been unmistakeable, and I have no doubt that he could have stayed at the line smoking them all day. Ahhh...I love that sound...starting to miss my V8, heheheh..
