No learning with a spool, it's going to do it's thing. LOL I had a spool in one of my old cars. Chirping everytime I turned a corner, slower was better but as long as there was traction under the wheel it chirped, in your case skipping with those tires. I liked my spool though there was no question as to whether it was going to lock, it was always locked. Great for drag racing.
Once you get the beast in dirt you likely won't even notice it.

New correct Griffin Racing Radiator installed with the Goatbuilt grill hoop. Everything is protected, just need to finalize the upper radiator hold down that will help seal the shroud. Trying to brainstorm a way to add some 7/8 heims for spares with it, but had to go to work. Lower radiator means better lines for the hood too.

Catch cans plumbed, radiator hoop tied in, hood mounted, skins painted, almost ready for a shakedown run. Seems a little sluggish off the line compared to my L67 car, but not sure if it's tune related or just needs a some upgrades.

Shakedown run was a disaster. Ripped a new 3/4 x 3/4 rear steer heim in half, transmission lost reverse and the fan rubbed a hole in the radiator. Got it torn apart, did a lot of grinding on the steering arms and almost had a new trans, but all 3 at the junkyard were the early 4l80 with the wrong tailshaft.

Yikes . Were those local junkyards you checked or did they look nationwide?

Maybe it would be better to have it (tranny) rebuilt by someone and made reasonably bulletproof.
