    - limited slip diff
    - traction bars
    - better tires
    - learn to launch :)

    um i have 17inch rims came with the car and new tires there blue streek tires bit cheaper than those high performance tires but they do the job, as for the suspension its bone stock, and can you even get a limited slip diff for a d series tranny?

    any tips on launching by the way?
    lmao one of my freinds tells me you can when your drag racing your suppost to double clutch. i dont under stand how you could possibly double clutch while drag racing if im wrong will some one please tell me how to do this. i know you can double clutch down shift but i think it would be point less to double clutch while your racing.

    Launch at your peak torque point, not the peak HP point.

    Get stickier tires, get smaller wheels for your 100 HP monster honda.

    Your problem is traction. Fix the driver first, then fix the traction.

    The problem is your 17's

    I Destroyed two trannys and a pair of axles when I had 17s on my boosted teg.

    17's aren't drag wheels.

    watch what pro racers do, then learn from them.

    suspension, tires, wheels, etc.

    and no, double clutching isn't going to help. he was giving you the fast and furious speech.

    I say shocks because I had a lot of wheel hop when I first put my LS in (2nd gear too) and I put KYB shocks in (stock shocks were way shot). Wheel hop reduced.

    You need to use some proper capitalization and punctuation. As demonstrated above, in a humorous manner, the meaning changes completely.

    Also, you'll probably need to replace the clutch soon. I'll bet what you're experiencing isn't wheel hop, but clutch/flywheel failure, induced by rampant ass-hattery. The d-series clutch and flywheel are well built, but not to the level that they like burnouts.

    Make sure all your engine mounts are still alright, and everything else is O.K. as well.

    Here's some reading material:
    Slipping

    EDIT: By doing burnouts, you not only do damage to your tires, but your clutch, flywheel, and possibly everything else in your stock 15 year old car. Please inspect/replace things before you do stupid stuff, and keep all stupid stuff on a track or skid-pad where it belongs.

    Big wheels, stock mounts and suspension are the biggest problem, then learn how to load the clutch.
