Body reaction on take-off

Asked by Jul 03, 2007 at 11:40 PM about the 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle

Question type: Car Customization

I had a '66 ss 396 Chevelle when I was 16; now at age 56 I finally have another one.  My 1st car would seem to raise up in the rear when I dumped the clutch.  The one that I have now seems to squat down in the rear.  What can I do to make this one raise up in the rear when I take off?

I've been trying to thing off ways to make that happen all week, and I can't think of anything. All I can think is that maybe your first car had more torque than your current one, which would maybe explain it, but if they are the same engine that wouldn't make any sense. Have you had any luck making it happen?
