Horrible times.time for tires

OK so mods are
Vortech V3si ( 9psi)
Ported TB
Hf cats
Flowmaster catback

Poly sub frame bushings
Toe rods
Control arms
Eibach sway bars
Eibach springs
Drag alignment

I am running on stock 21s but I can't give it any throttle at the track as it just spins. Best time on 21s was a 12.6@116 2.6 60ft.

I just ordered 305 45 18 NT05r's and 9.5 wheels. What else do I need to do for traction? I was expecting to at least run a 11.9 on the 21s..sure didn't happen.

Looking at the data log I didn't stop spinning and get 100% into the throttle until 4 seconds into the pass

I've gone 1.51 on this tires. I put them at 20 cold, and do a long M2 burnout.

If you are losing traction every time, very easily, then you might want to launch with Traction control on.

I switched between TC on and off in my runs and went 11.9 twice with it on, and 12.1, 12.2, 12.3 with me trying to manage the traction.

So, with my small amount of seat time, the computer is better at controlling traction than I am. I hit the button once for the burnout, then turn it back on for the run. I am on stock 20s with normal street tires. My best 60' was like 1.76 I think
