Not bad man, Little more at the track and your times will come down. Also maybe a tune will help too!

Good job improving on your ET's. With a tune you can wittle it down for sure. Your 60ft could use some work, did you take out the spare tire and jack.....drop your rear tire pressure, make sure your front tires were at max pressue? Also, what RPM were you launching at.

Remove your spare tire, jack and optional, lower rear seat. Also remove the carpet/wood from your trunk. Make sure your OD is off. Do a quick spin of the tires to clean them, but do not do a burn out. Set your front tires to max psi (there is usually air at the track) and set your rears to 28psi, you can dial it down to 25psi if you are need too.

Then, power brake to 1500, on the next pass, power brake to 1600, etc in increments of 100 rpm until you find the max RPM you can launch at without tire spin. Also, when staging to the tree, pump your brakes like crazy. This will get your brake pressure up and allow you to power brake the car at a higher rpm.

Good luck.
