You need traction bars!

I can't believe the difference traction bars made in the shifting on my truck. Spartan 310 now feels like the 210 tune shifting, it also got rid of the touchy throttle and you can feel more power going to the ground. I can't wait to tow with them installed.

Jeff, if Spartan sold bars with its tuner package you would never hear another complaint about shifting!

BTW I went with PMF bars, they work great and Trevor has excellent customer service.

Great video....and yes that scares the **** out of me! Wow, so that is what I'm feeling when I hammer on it. I guess it is time for some traction bars.

Wow, That's kinda scary. Are 6.0's that bad? Obviously not as much torque though. If so im ordering some lol

Yes, it's still not good with the 6.0, you won't have quite as much with it because less power but tuned with a race tune and other mods definitely will get axle wrap. It's worse with lifted trucks I believe. Ever since watching that video I haven't been getting on my truck hard. I'm just having tough time finding them for stock suspension without paying an arm and a leg
