Help dial in suspension launch video

Need some help dialing in my suspension. Car will never spin, but falls on its nose after launch. Assuming i need to tighten up the struts some more, but any other advice would be great. Wondering if i should also swap to a different front spring. This is leaving off the limiter.



Strange 10 way struts on setting 3
Strange 10 way shocks on setting 2
14 inch 130lb spring
anti roll bar
stock springs in rear

Start by putting those rear shocks at like 7 or 8. See if that makes a big difference, then adjust down until you’re happy


Stock block 306, V1 T-trim, AFM B-451 cam, TFS Twisted Wedge, Holley Systemax, A1000, Snow Meth, TKO 600, Team Z, Strange, MM, Lakewood and Moser helps me go forward fast.

What tires are you using.
There has to be some slip, either tires or clutch and drag radials don’t like to spin much and recover.
