Spinning tires?
I only have my permit but I drove my truck a lot yesterday and pretty much every time I accelerated from a stop I would get a little scratch. I also did my o-60 time but it got screwed up because I spun tires up to about 20 any way it was 17.3s. And I almost got hit because I was trying to turn and as soon as I hit the gas my tire spun.

Is there a problem?

I was just wondering why I started spinning tires all of a sudden. It wouldn't do it very easily before.

weight transfer or a lack thereof or an excess thereof.

Would new rear shocks help? I still have the factory ones.

doubtful. Our trucks have zero weight on the right rear. The fuel tank and driver are on the left side, and the engine weights the front, leaving the right rear out in la-la land.

If I put a stroker motor in it I will put a fuel cell where the spare tire is. I found two 2nd gen Camaros behind some ones house so today I'm gonna ask if they are for sale today. If I do snag one of them I will put a stroker in that instead.

I'm still trying to figure something out on mine. Limited slip is the only correct solution, but I'm trying to jack what little weight there is, towards that right rear corner.

Well it started raining and even though I have an open diff I still left two black marks.

rain can pretty much nullify an open differential given the proper tire.
