My car hooks initially but sometimes gets loose about 100-200 feet out. Tough to dial not knowing if it will stay hooked or not. Not a very fast car so it suprised me that I could spin 16.5-33s only running 6.0s with a sbc.

That sounds to me like it needs to be a little lower & longer to keep it hooked down track, but may be a tire pressure issue. What pressure do you run? My Vette roadster did the same with a sb & bb. Found out my tire gauge was reading 1.5lbs low. New gauge, problem solved. Mine likes 4.5-5lbs....
