I don't know how good the eagles are but my Kuhmo STX are great!! I had the same problem you have when I had my Kuhmo 712's on. Now I just have them up front.

What kind of mustang was it? Were you at the track? And how long of a burnout did you do? If you sat there and just went to roasting those RSA's you will never get traction b/c a good amount of street tires get slippery when you do a long burnout. I'd suggest just spinning them over till you see a little bit of smoke then let off the brake and stage.

I don't know much about racing, but had the same problem whenever the streets are a little wet. Seem to have more engine than I do truck. Since it was winter and needed more traction, I wrapped two bags of play sand in plastic, and set it over the axles in the bed. Seemed to help quite a bit. It comes in handy if you get stuck on ice or snow because you have something to throw under the wheels.
