There is nothing wrong with spinning out if you are in the hunt. Beats being 50' behind when you stall out in the next higher gear.

How are you placing; 1st, 2nd, last? How far are you behind the leaders? Are your front wheels skimming the ground or just off the ground the end of the pull? What weight classes are you running? What is the maximum tire size allowed? What tire size are you running? Cut, road worn (sharp), top cut, uncut, etc.?

Those are reasonable, respectable results for the first year of pulling. If you have enough power to spin out you have enough power to bring the front end off the ground. You need to work on balancing the tractor. This is a matter of weight bracket locations, weight placement, hitch, tire pressure, tire tread, etc. At this point, work on moving weight further back until the front end is just skimming the ground or off the ground 6-12" at the very end of your pulls. See if someone can record your pulls with an emphasis on the back tires. Are they squatting a bit, have a little bit of a wrinkle in the side wall at the end of the pull? You want a shark front edge on your tires with the back of the lugs lower than the front edge. You do not want a lot of tread on the tires. Half the original lug height is plenty on most tracks.

Good Luck!
