I agree with that, and DR/Slicks would help a few tenths for sure. I would go Sticky tires, stall, gearing... then better suspension and then more power...

If it's any consulation. I dont think stick tires & suspension is ever bad advice when talking about improving ET's.

You should be atleast low 14s... to be honest, you should be in the high 13 range, def once you put 3:73's. If you're spinning off the line you should get some slicks. My car is faster than yours and it seems yours has more mods. IDK crazy times, but maybe its because you live in AZ?

Way less mods and I pull high 13s at Firebird which isn't far from that track. Something is wrong.

I've been drag racing in Arizona for 20+ years.
FireBird was always about .15 quicker than S.I.R. as a minimum.
There is that much altitude differance.......
