I autoX'ed my car with Eibach Drag Launch Kit, Tokico Illumina 5-way drag struts, Lakewood 50/50's, and 275/50/15 Nitto drag radials.
The car got around the course, but the car literally moved the exact opposite that it was supposed to. I had more than a couple people ask me what was wrong with my car.
Now I'm on the other end, H&R Race springs and Bilstein HD's, autoX's pretty well, and I can still cut a 1.7 60' time on ET Streets(1.8 on Eagle F1-GSD3). I could see a 1.6 with more time on ET streets, but 1/4 isn't a huge deal for me.
For my opinion, I would rather have a car that handles well than a car that launches well. I spend more time on the street and freeway than at the drag strip. I feel much more confident in my car's handling abilities in spirited driving and emergency situations with my current setup than I did when I had the drag launch kit on it.
But to each his own, best luck with whatever you do!
