Default Raising The Rear And Lowering The Front?

This may or may not be in the right place but..

I was wondering could raising the rear and lowering the front reduce some wheel spin when launching in early gear?

Basically making it harder for weight to transfer from front to back

Let me know what you guys think or if someone ON here has done this before

The is the only benifits of running coilovers, you will need to tweak the F/R combo until you reach desire , traction bars will help but it all depends on how much power you are making,

the type of tires your using, and how you launch/drive.

I drove like that for 2 years and yes the car had super grip in the front. Very hard to even burn rubber. I got better grip in light rain and snow too. Bad thing the front would basically dive into bumps when it should go "over" bumps. Felt like having a front end collision going over bumps. Also, the braking was incorrect. Most of the braking was transfered to the front and the front tires got ate up.

I personally would;d not do the rake look because for one it doesn't look good, your gas gauge will not be accurate because the gas will all be in the front of the tank, and that is a lot of stress on the front suspension and brakes, weight distribution bro..,
