Lower air pressure is a real easy way.

Re: TRACTION

I agree with everyone else. Lower air pressure a bit ( a lot of guys will run 20psi or lower) and opt for some better upper/lower control arms. Also being light on the accelerator until tires catch at speed is pretty nifty... Feathering is something not a lot of people like to do or do well.. But it's a great mod to cut 60' times down and usually get a better 1/4 time when you start becoming more efficient.

Yea 60 ft time is everything and finding the perfect launch point I have mine at like 3300-3600 rpm when I launch at the track with real crappy tires so it depends but driver mod is everything trial and error until you get it right
