So your rear shocks are Comp Engineering coil-overs? Or Comp Engineering shocks and coil-over springs in the stock location?

A video would help A LOT. A video showing the front tire and back tire during launch to see what it's doing.

wish i could video but im a solo operation. they are the cheapo economy coil spring with shocks and adjustable brackets..i thought about doing the qa1 coilover front conversion.at same time as new rears if needed i have acsess to someone that can scale the car and corner balance but hes a pro drift car driver and needs me to tell him how to set up weight balance.. the car doesnt squat at all like i see every g body do. it has double adj upper and lower rear with spherical rod ends. and a track bar...i removed track bar and car has so much body roll it want to roll over when driving. i do have pics of the rear suspension i will post

A panhard bar doesn't belong on a stock type suspension G-body. They don't control twist anyways (or body roll), they just control side to side movement which on a G-body the upper control arms do that. You need an anti-roll bar to control body roll and twist. If you're running with the panhard bar hooked up, you're most likely just binding up the whole rear suspension and not letting it travel correctly... which would be a big part of your issue.

In the video, it does start transferring weight... you can see the front end rise and pull the tires, then spin. Most likely you need a better set of front shocks that get tighter to slow the front end rise down. It looks like you're topping the front shocks out too quickly, which is common with Comp Engineering shocks.

I'd suggest better shocks front and rear for sure along with new rear coil-over springs. And an anti-roll bar to control the body roll and force the rear tires to plant evenly. Then get the car scaled and aligned to make sure the weights are where they need to be and to make sure the rearend is centered and squared in the car.
