My car had 90/10's with 175lb coilovers and D&D control arms with FMS "C" springs in the rear. With traction the car would 60 ft 1.76-1.78 on every pass. The right rear would squat quite a bit along with not much rise in the right front. The left rear would not squat at all and the left front would rise up a few inches on launch. I have since replaced the worn out stock shocks with lakewood 50/50's and have coilovers now instead of the C springs. I won't be able to make it to the track for a while so I am wondering if the car will 60ft any harder now that the rear is hopefully a little better controlled because of the new shocks. Can a car leave any harder if it is already not spinning?

Yes it's entirely possible. You are wasting time and power making the car squat on the launch. Tis the whole basis for Kevin Slaby's How to Launch a Drag Car page.

For reference, I ran [email protected] with a 1.71 60ft. You can go quicker with your mph.
