did a tread awile ago about to much tire spin..

everyones answer was tires.....

had supercharger off and found a clogged intercooler...

tire spin before was anytime you try to accelerate even as easy as you can


now i can almost give it everything its got with street tires


just wanted to pass this on

Say what? With a clogged intercooler your car made so much power the tires were spinning all the time. Now that you've cleaned it you have less power and more traction? That's completely ass-backwards from what logically should happen. I mean now that the intercooler is clean you should have MORE power, not less?

um maybe crazy but when i said excessive wheel spin everyones confused

trying to go from 30mph to 32mph tires would spin you sideways even at 80 it would do it


car has butt loads of power ,but it appears the intercooler acts like a air filter..maybe i had to push more on the gas before and thats why the wheels spun so easy

30-32??? dude...that is not enough time to get sideways!!!

The intercooler is not a filter, but if it is clogged, raping on it will just make it worse....lucky you didn't do anything worse!!!
