Torque and traction question!

So Ive had my lude for about 5 months now and I been driving stick for years so I dunno if its me or just the car but it seems like the front tires spin out too easy even worst when I'm on a slight hill, so question is it my driving (which I highly doubt) or is there something I can do to fix this? Just seems like a lot of torque I dunno

Re: Torque and traction question!

So I decided not go get them so I sold the rims I had gotten for them 18'x8 aspec wheels) and slapped on some stock 5 star TL wheels with decent tires on them and see what happens until next summer. Now time to look into something to improve handling or something to improve HP. (no exhaust I don't want my **** all Loud. Thanks for the input and wise ass remarks fellas.(southflaakid) lol
