Your car is begging for Cal-Tracs, those will hold the pinion at it's set angle and give a way better launch than "slapper" bars.

With slicks, you really need to put some cal tracs on that car. Do that and maybe some adjustable shocks and your problems are solved.

the companys' web site is HERE

I searched both jegs and summit quickly and didn't see them, they may not sell them

I am not sure, but I think that THESE are very similar and do the same thing, maybe some can correct me if I am wrong
