drag mods

What it is yo. I've got a 01 V6 Mustang with the following mods and I'm looking to reduce more weight and/or better my weight transfer and I'm looking for suggestions, ideas, and/or tricks.

My mods consist of:

P1-SC Procharger (9lbs of boost)
DynospeedRacing tune
BBK headers
Jegs cat back
KYB Adjust. shocks
3:73s
Diff lock
Micky Thompson E/T streets
reprogrammed 4R70W automatic
gutted back seat
gutted trunk
gutted bumper supports (front and back)

Upcoming mods within the next couples wks:

battery relocate
aluminum driveshaft
hotter coil pack
larger throttle body

Any suggestions of where I can remove more weight, better weight transfer? Any suggestions or tips on how to launch at the track? Drag racing tricks/ tips?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Re: drag mods

Also, I'm needing to know how big a stall my OEM torque converter is and how far I can push b4 it starts to slip.

Re: drag mods

the factory converter will flash between 1000-1500RPMs for the best 60ft launch the car off idle. If you stall the comverter it's going to flash at a lower RPM.

Re: drag mods

launch from a dig huh. I'm goin back the 1/4 in about 2-3 wks. I'll have to try that on a pass. So, I guess, with this said, then, there's no need in looking into a higher stall? btw, whats "flash"? I'm familiar with a lot of slang and terms and such, but "flash" is one I'm not familiar with.

Any other suggestions.

Re: drag mods

would being 60,000mi over due for a trans flush dramtically stiffle my 1/4mi times?
