Question about the Track tonight

So tonight I'm heading to the track to see some improvements in my times since my car was stock. I've since added a LOT, coilovers front and rear, full rear suspension with BMR parts, upper and lower relocation brackets, upper and lower control arms, and there panhard bar. I also added some 305/35/20 MT street comps for some added traction over the stock Pirelli's. A buddy of mine told me to set the dampening to hard in the front and soft in the rear if that sound about right? Should I also deflate the rear tires just a bit as well? Finally what times should I expect to see tonight because my best time last time was 13.75 @ 105mph with terrible launching so I'll be looking at working on that tonight.

Oh and I took quite a few things out of the car for tonight

Wow so tonight was an amazing improvement to say the least good lord! I did 4 runs this evening and I still have a bad reaction issue from 1st to 2nd even getting the tires nice and warm. Here are the 4 slips for each run I did. The first one I was getting a feel for the car and sort of babied it. The last one even made the announcer say something about my reaction time lol. That last run was against another 5.0 with a boss intake, air raid CAI, Cattless Xpipe, flow master axle backs, and a tune. Needless to say he freaked out when I got the launch and spun and missed gears lol!

You want it soft in front and firm in the rear.

Whats about the average run a 5.0 can do with 3.31 gears with a 6speed manual? I couldn't find much on youtube or other threads

Depends on many factors including track and mods on car.

Just suspension, haven't touched the motor yet. It was about 64 degrees last night around 100ft above sea level.

Shoot for mid 12's and that would be good. But at this point your tire is really holding you back.
