    I was coming home from a car show yesterday and saw a chance to get a video on my traction problem. I never did get to wide open throttle, but pretty close. This will give you an idea of why I like boost though. lol Turn your sound up.

    Between Jimjimjimmy and I it looks like us Maritime boys were out having a little fun yesterday.

      You gotta love boost. Years ago I had a car making over 25 lbs. of boost. It was a handful on the street even with drag radials.

            I am running Nitto 325-50-15 drag radials. Traction does seem to be a bit of a problem.

              I ran M/T drag radials but could roast my tires at 80 on the highway. It could get squirrelly pretty quickly.
              I was making 17 lbs of boost just off idle. :steering:

                I am at 9 lbs of boost. That is plenty for me. My wife thinks I am absolutely nuts.
