Question first race since winterizing, whats the problem?

went to the track today and was very disappointed. over the winter all i did to my car was put in a detroit locker and 31 splines so i did nothingto the engine. i ran a best 12.88 @104 mph, last years best was 12.05 @ 115 mph. the car just seems to die after 5500 rpm but last year it pulled all the way through 7000. what do you guys think the problem is? we are thinking maybe is a bad fuel filter and the car is dying of fuel starvation but we are really not sure. what do you guys think?

hey, i don't know but my car ran real slow after the winter break.

best time last year was a 13.68, this year on DRs i could only get a 13.8. My 60ft time was improved, but couldn't bang gears right.

with me i think i was just out of practice. does the car feel strong?
