when im taking off from a stoped position my car shakes violently, have no problem smoking the tires when already moving, whats up with this¿¿ anybody,
p.s. brought home a new one today,67 fast back, PO hacked the dash up pretty badly but it was worth the money. almost perfect body and flared rear fenders which probaly ruin it ever being original, so me and dad decided to go ahead and make it a shelby since its the only way we can afford one, woohoo, now i have 2 to work on. yikes.

Is it an auto or an manual. Manual could be a worn clutch or auto could be a bad tranny. Just my opinion.

Someone please buy my Ski Doo!

i had that problem, too. like what someone else mentioned, it was my flywheel. there were hot spots that caused it to warp.

Are your springs old and do you have traction bars? It just sounds like wheel hop to me caused by rear leaf spring wrap up. Once you get them to bouncing from a dead stop it will just about shake you to death.

Same thing on my car.. I replaced the motor mount and moved up to the 66 style and that cleared it right up...no more shaking..no I can smoke the tires from a stand still..
