More wheelspin uphill....?
I have noticed that going uphill I get much more wheel spin.. I go over this bridge every day and if I floor it in 2nd gear going up it the car will squat go a little sideways and spin through all of 2nd. But if I do the same at the top or going down the bridge it will hook up just fine.. I always thought going uphill would transfer more weight to the rear adding more traction.
P.S. "Automatically convert links into videos" did not work this time...?

Without getting too nerdy on you, it has to do with the acceleration of gravity, the mass of your car and the force of friction. The steeper the angle, the less weight pushing down on the tires and the less friction (traction) you'll have.

Exactly...thats why I was did a race on a bridge and I was at 90mph and started to head up hill and my traction control kicked in.Current: 2005 Mercedes E55 AMG

Ya I guess it makes sense now its like if you were to pedal a bike really fast up a very steep incline the back tire would spin. Probably not the best example but I can see it now, lol.

The joints in the bridge could be exacerbating the problem as well, but the angle cannot be ignored either.Some people live long, meaningful lives.
Other people eat shit and die.
I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
