You can knock those down A LOT. Just takes a good launch on a not hot ass day.

I would focus on your launches. Get that 60ft down. You may wanna use coil spring spacers in the rear springs (just jack up the rear crossemember, pop them in and take them out when you are done). That would help keep some weight on the front wheels on your launch.

Well I'm sure I can get them down a little more. But seeing as how is freakin Texas I don't think it will be anytime soon since its just getting hotter and hotter.

BTW. I'm going back next Thursday and will actually give my car time to cool so I can try to get into the 9's.

another thing to adjust other than coil spring spacers is to put you front tire pressure at 25 psi and your rear at 40. not as radical as spacers, but it helps a little.
