Main thing is your 60' time... need to work on getting that down. Is your car an auto or a manual? What kind of wheels and tires?

Well... I am morbidly obese... so I know about being heavier... ugh...

Ok.. how are you launching? I found I got my best times by:

left foot on the brake
right foot on the gas
bring the RPMs up to just over idle
when you are ready to go, let off the brake and hit the gas, basically at the same time... one fluid motion, so to speak...

Try bumping up your RPM a bit... And practice... Should be able to get the 60' down to the 2.1 range...

Everything scrming said. I take my rears down to 22 psi and the fronts up to 42 lbs.

At the track I run Goodyear summer tires but should work with the stock setup.

I launch from just over idle at about 11- 12k with the nannies on. I just slam the pedal.

I also do a good burnout to heat the rears up. (with T/C off for the burnout)

With T/C on, you may get a little hesitation if the wheels slip but the 'puter corrects pretty fast.

If lucky and with no wheel spin, you should get closer to a 2.00 60'

If the track is sticky, I'll launch with T/C off but that is rare in colder weather.

Just my experience.

I ran 5 times and the last run of mine was my favorite, I ran against a early stock 2000s bullet mustang and lost to it but it was close that was my reason for beings my favorite

No big secret I ran a 13.7 and three 13.8 NA and only one run on a low bottle of the juice and ran a 12.05 the car was breaking up a little in each gear I think at the shift point but not sure. This may be from low bottle pressure I may try to reduce the size of the nitrous jet any feed back is welcome.
I think if I get this worked out I will be close to being told I need a roll bar. Can't wait till we line up on black Friday

Nice!

No rollbar until you hit 11.49...
