My 69XR7 ConVert spent 6 years on jacks in the driveway in the texas sun. I have spent the last year restoring her she is now legal to drive. I must have put to much under the hood, The tires just wont bite hard at all. Has anybody installed some traction bars that dont look like ****, or any ideas on how to keep her glued to the ground, both tires will not burning until half way through second gear.

351W/FMX/3:50to1 approx 425hp

Get some softer compound tires like goodyears. Or go wider. Does it hop at all?

How about a couple big Texas girls in the back seat???? Just a joke now, my daughter lives in Texas.

How about some of those southside machine bars. You can tell me how they work since I have been eyeballing them. mm
