    Hi, i'm making a 1000hp front wheel drive (fwd) engine in UpgradeClass for my personal use, but when i accelerate the car, it makes a drag racing burnout.
    What can i do?

    You would need to get more grip as well, not just power!

    There's a reason why fwd cars rarely have much more than 200 bhp.

    When you accelerate, weight is transferred to the rear. This helps a rwd car, but means you just get wheelspin in a fwd car.

    In 1/4 mile my upgraded WTCC cars ran well, 9.8@241 km/h, but my 09 K20 Civic converted from San Andreas with permission burned out, 13.2@211 km/h, In circuits only the Civic "loses" the turn.
