Back when I had my 427/450 Chevelle.........same thing.......small burn out to heat the tires........slip the clutch off the line about 1/2 way thru 1st........then bang gears and SMOKE the dufus next to me!!

I thought that too, but lets face it we have an obesity problem here. It would take some serious lightening of the front end to make it act like that. My 1275 gets a light feeling, but won't lift the tire. I still have 883 gearing in the primary, and the 1250 front belt sprocket, so that helps it with the light feeling, but not enough.
