Skinny tires in the front

Do skinny tires really help that much at the drag strip? I would agree it would help a 8 or 9 sec car but will it really decrease a 12 sec cars 1/4 times? I would worry about stability with skinny tires in the front.

Every little bit counts. I don't notice any stability issues, just don't drive stupid.

Take curves with caution and avoid evasive lane changes and you'll be fine. I DD my WS6 with them, no problems. Every bit of weight helps, as does rotational mass throughout the driveline.

Yes they make a difference although not a significant one.
