Getting an El Camino to hookup

I recently added a ProCharger system to the car and have fount that the E.T. Street tires now spin through both first and second gear and I still don't have the car completely tuned. I am not interested in tubbing the car and have seen some pictures of El Caminos with the front tires in the air. Any suggestions from anyone as to how to attack this? Thanks for any help.

I had a 1970 El Camino Super Sport ... with the LS 6 454 - 450 HP option and traction was always the problem. It was nose heavy ... a lot. Now ... there are companies that make better bushings for the El Camino ... better shocks and such. Also ... anything you can do to reduce the weight of the front helps ... but street tires will only hold so much power ...
