There are a LOT of guys who would kill for a car that would hook and go, w/o drama of wheel spin!!
I'm with ya there cobalt . My bucket will get a little sideways from a deadstop due to only weighing 1800 lbs but it is impossible to brake torque it due to the tiny rear brakes in the early GM rearend . I hold the brake pedal down as hard as I can (power brakes) with my left foot and press on the throttle with my right and I can slide the front tires down the road as far as I want . No too far , I don't want flat spots on my tires . Good hookup with the long wishbones >>>>>>>>
