It wouldn't be a bad Idea to get some drag struts and shocks then, get some street strip dampers and that will help alot. Also I would look into drag radials or full slicks.

Look into QA1 for dampers

Thanks, I'm trying to find some good radials. I've been making a parts list. I thought about the boss manifold but I don't think it would do me much good

It will do you lots of good as far as power but it won't do much good for traction haha

Haha true. But it's always nice to have a good amount of power. I got some buddy's who are building their cars they think they will beat me so I'm trying to stay in the game

To run a high 11 just get a tune, uca, lcas, and slicks. A good driver can hit 11's with just those few things

+1
You'd be pretty close with just the slicks and a tune honestly. The issue with our cars is not power, it's the application of the power to the street.

Steeda makes good parts. Can't go wrong with BMR, UPR, and white line as well. As far as a tune, go with Steeda, Bama, vmp, AED, Lund, and I'm sure there's a few I'm leaving out

In case you needed some back-up ... here is a car that used our parts to get into the 9's ... then the 8's ...

2013 GT500 Breaks Into The 9’s Using Steeda Parts Steeda Blog

First 2013 Manual GT500 In The 8’s Equipped With Steeda Parts Steeda Blog

Let me know if you would like to speak off line about packages? You can reach me at tim@steeda.com

I won't mentioned names ... but one of those manufacturers listed above is taking some heat for a parts failure ... you can check out SVT.

Best Regards,

TJ

If your thinking of street / strip drag shocks I bought a pair of adjustable shocks from Strange Engineering they work really well IMO. They were 79$ each & they make the Adjustable front struts too for 140 each. I haven't bought those yet.
And I run the 18" Drag Radials mainly because I found the Nitto. 275 40 18. For 216 each.

That's not a bad price at all. I'm thinking about running nitto nt05 275 35 on my brembo wheels and buying some slicks just for the track when I need them
