Its tough to launch a street car with a 2.20 first gear ratio and stock gears.It works fine in a corvette that was intended to road race.
I upgraded to a 2.78 first gear for my car with a 3.50 rear gear,coupled to a higher rpm engine it still is a bit of a pain in traffic.If you launch at anything over 1200 rpm the tires spin,,,,
a 5 speed should fix your problem
