^^^^ To confirm what Tom said, this winter I did a Strange package of 33 spine race axles (full induction hardened), c clip elims, and a lightweight race spool. My trac lock was getting tired, and doing occasional one wheel burn outs. 60's were creeping up from 1.54's to 1.58's and 9's. Time to go.
At the track, I saw no significant improvement in 60', still bests of 1.54, but very very consistent. All 1.54's. Also, definitely hits harder on launch and able to run a little higher air pressure in the Hoosiers and still hook hard. Picks the front wheels up about 3" more than before. The spool/higher tire pressure I believe were worth half a tenth and an extra mph in the traps.

Coincidence. A convenient and overused word for the mentally lazy.
