some setup ?'s

I will be going out to the track again this Friday, 2nd time out!
Couple of questions:

-Should I set my rear coilovers to a harder setting? Right now it is in a medium to soft setting. Spring are soft really soft. There is still alot of room to turn the coil up.

-The power peaks at around 5400. where should I set my rev limiter? I kinda figured to set a rev limiter so I can just mash the gas and not lift when shifting.

Thanks for all the replies in advance and wish me luck for 12's.

Not a good idea. Hitting the limiter at anytime during a drag racing pass, will hinder your ET/MPH substantionally.

Screwing the perch up on your rear coilover when make it any stiffer. It will just increase ride height. If you need stiffer quick and cheap, get or make spring rubbers.
