Yes it will help out mainly with launch which will determine how that pass will go. It lets the front end lift more and the rear end to sit lower and you will get more traction. Plus it does take away about 12ish pounds. I saw your other threads about the track few tips to help bring your times down most people will look at these things and say that's retarded that won't help any but it does cause I've tested everything I've done to my mustang and it always helped lower my times: 1. remove front bumper support this will shed 30 pound on the front helping launch, weight transfer, and help your car weight lighter, 2. relocate battery to the trunk, help launch, and weight transfer, 3. egr delete this helps weight reduction and helps throttle response also adds three horsepower, 4. your air filter remove splash shield and get a big a** filter. More air = more torque, 5. bypass your a/c pulley and run a shorter belt this will free up a few horses, 6. lower my tire pressure to 22 psi in the rear with street tires, 8 pounds with slick. 9. Gut your car and take out any unnecessary parts even parts underneath the interior, leave your trunk gutted take your spare tire and jack out. I put weights in my trunk if I can't find traction. 10. Track bite helps you grip, spray some grip tight mixed half and half with alcohol and soak your tires do a burnout till you feel your rearend trying to grip and go all night the stuff last for about 1000 miles 11. Control your launch as fast as you can go and Power shift as fast as you can.
