Help me get traction!

Ok guys I need help getting traction. I just got my longtubes In and they make a lot more power then before. Iv got multiple bolt ons and rear end gears. Suspension wise I have bmr lower control arms. Transmission brace. And cobra jet drag springs. And 285/35/18 eagle f1 tires. And some weight reduction like no spare tire and no backseat. What can I do to get better launces and traction right now I'm spinning all the way to 3rd. Please list most important to least parts I need

If you are spinning that bad, having some weight over the rear tires may help during launch until the weight shifts.

Well in theory the added weight above the rear wheels should enhance traction.

Plus the whole flat tire thing...

It cuts like maybe 15 pounds anyways. You can do lower control arm relocation too maybe some drag bags, then of course a stickier tire

It goes in your rear springs and helps you with launching

It stiffens the rear end and keeps it from squatting so much. You put them in you're rear coil and fill them with air then adjust accordingly. Or if your car is launching to one side helps with that too. Helps make your launches straighter
