start by using gravity to your advantage and put all of your weight in the rear ie gas tank. pull the metal fenders and hood from the front, swap to fiberglass or carbonfiber, get short and wide rear tires with low air pressure for grip... if that doesnt work.... get an aluminum front beam... or my way, just buy motorcycle :)...... }Oh and try stuffing all the neighborhood kids in the rear seat by the gas tank for more weight, and if you flip it, just think, they will never bother you again.

If tires in the back are spinnin you're not gettin enough grip in the back obviously. Try lowering the pressure in your rear tires (not so much that the rim spins in the tire) and put some weight over the rear wheels. Sorry if this has been said didnt have time to read the whole thread.

do you have 3x3 arms on the car? ar you an IRS or Swing Axle Car? You could be geared to low with the Bus trans axle. Can you lif the front of the car off the ground with you and a buddy?

that would be rear arms. 2 you might have the highend HP but not the grunt to lift the front end. But from what you say the tires will spin, so you also have a traction problem. You might need to put some sticky street tires on it.

I heard that the Bus trans lifts more upward when accelerating. I heard it was good for climbing dune hills because it squats up instead of down. But Thats just what I heard.

The bus that will lift the rear has reduction box's, so the axles rotate backwards and then the reduction boxes turn the wheels forward. That is what makes the rear end rise up. every thing else the car will squat down, It's just the way it is.

You should post your engine specs....could be setup for just top end and don't have the torque to pull it...

list your specs, cam, heads, valve size, port work, carbs, exhaust, distributor, ...anything you can think of.
