Ride: ED falcon gli - XR6 replica

Location: Canberra
ACT, Australia

complety un-load my ED when auto would spin 235's but single to start until some pedal pumping and the other would follow (under controlled conditions ofcourse). even when it was bog standard it would EASILY spin the 215/65R14's. its got a 3.23:1 single pegger. id imagine 3.08 and 2.92 are pretty hard to get moving but highway cruiser here we come haha.

if your actually trying to do 'foot-ons' and it wont spin em, maybe your rear brakes are just that good, afew times the ED would just push the front tyres along and snow plow with no spin

check urs basics, like timing and if your getting WOT, its ur accel cable has streched you might only be getting 80% etc. just thrown idea around. maybe hunt for a diff with some taller gears?
crawl under and check the tag or sticker on the diff.
