the next round of mechanical improvement is the LSD and clutch to utilize your power. Being FWD doesn't help.

Like they said, better tires, Diff. and a Lakewood traction bar would def. help.

Read my How To on how to run a fast 1/4 mile. Learn how to launch, and yuo'll be fine. Don't lower your tire pressure n street tires! That redused the amount of tread contact. The side walls are to stiff and cause the contact patch to buckle, reducing traction. Slow down to go faster! Stop going WOT from a dig. Don't say your not because you'd be liying. I've got almost 300whp, and on street tires I can still hit 2.1 60 ft times. Just stay off the throtle until you can utalize your power. Thier are guys in here that have the power to smoke'em through 3rd and part of 4th, but guess what, they can still launch it with out smoking thier tires.

Hope this helps. Good luck, and let us know if yuor times improve.

GET...BETTER...TIRES.
Just my two cents as well, but if you are on stockers, there is MUCH better... All the other suggestions are valid, too.

The big two are throttle control and better tires.

everything is fine until i hit about 4k then it just spins. its not the launch itself but afterwards. and yes im running the 15in stockers but with 205's. will i need to get a better clutch eventually? how much hp can the stock clutch handle?

The clutch may hold up for quite a while, it depends on the "abuse" level... Try to save up and budget for some better tires, you will be amazed if you get some good rubber.

I`ll modulate this for ya!!!
Slam it down and keep it there............... If it breaks loose get wider tires and hold on....[:p]
