Here is a few videos we have captured Saturday (don't forget to turn the HD on in utube video quality settings!).

I have the afco double adjustable shocks in the rear. the front is non adjustable at this time. Trying to get a better hook any and all help is appreciated. Got the 4 corner weight of the car as well if needed.

The vid below was a soft launch (1.54 60") with shocks set tight on both compression and reboud

The next one is the same shock settings but trying to launch it hard having to pedal it to regain traction and still hazing them.

Third video is in the evening with a cooler track surface and better prep also the rebound on the rear shocks were changed to 25 clicks from tight trying to launch it hard having to pedal again.

Some new videos from last weekend after i changed front springs to longer softer spring , added 100lbs in the trunk and added 1/4lb air in the tires also installed new slicks as my old ones were done. track was crappy and I only got to make 2 passes because of all of the broken down cars soiling up the track but I still managed to keep both 60 ft times in the 1.4* range. so I thing on a good track it should hook well. I will post the full length vids when I get a chance to upload them.

Most of your problem is tire releated IMO.

Its crushing the tire on the hit and then the tire is basketballing unloading the suspension, causing wheel spin. You need more air pressure, tubes or stiffer sidewall tires.

With the weight in the back and softer rear spring you took some hit away from the tire which hooks better for you but its the wrong way to about it IMO.

Thanks for your opinion. I was thinking of just going up with the air pressure till I the tire stops to collapse or it spins on the hit. And hopefully find a happy medium. I Had m/t stiff walls on there before and it didn't make much difference for some reason.
