Default 3rd gen first time out with new set up

Finally hit the track. Had trouble hooking up but drag radials are all new to me. Still need some suspension upgrades. All it has is a Spohn tq arm,rear sway bar, and some 10 year old shocks on the back. Installing some adjustable rear lower control arms this week. Everything else is stock in rear and all is stock in the front. Looking for any ideas. Tried 16-18psi in tires. Not much of a change. No line lock as of yet hence the bad burn outs(car was pushing bad). Ran a best of 11.26@121.8mph with some shitty 60fts. 1.68-1.8. Car weighs 3450 with me,415ci,engine made 547hp,3.73 gear, 275/60/15 MT D/R, dana 60, 700r4.

Good old Ubly. Maybe I'll see you out there when I get my junk together. Nice runs, just do a better burnout.
