Default Help Me get my Power to the ground?

I went to the track about a month ago and pulled a 2.395 2.4 60ft time 13.4 @111 mph on street tires, were 30 psi. Since then I just bought Lower control arms, and panhard bar and nittos 555r 245/50/16. I also have sfc.
My car is M6. My goal is to get into 11's with what I have so Far. I also have the stock 10 bolt and know about it being weak. So I should be prepared soon for an strange 12bolt. What else to I need to do to get that 60ft down? Any other recomendations? Also say I get a 1.7-1.8 60ft what would my et be and mph how much would I improve on that?

I hate to say it, but good luck hooking up on those nittos with a M6 400+ RWHP car.

This = win.

No way do those Nittos have the holding power for that setup.

You're going to have to baby that car out of the hole.

At least a 2.0 60' should be doable. Play with tire pressure and RPM.

Do you have LCA relocation brackets? That will help as well.

Thanks Joe, No problem we will do that I just wanted to get others opinions. I am looking at all ends here. I am trying to prepare for the worst hahahah. with this 10 bolt.

Also I noticed that the sphoon torque arm looks to be more rigid compared to the umi one. I could be wrong but look at the adj torque arm. The umi has weld to a looks like flimsy metal piece, compared to the metal perpendicular one one the sphoon.

Yes, they are both good and my adj. torque arm is a spohn.He is just putting the Nitto's on there for now so he has less of a chance of breaking the 10 bolt until he can get a better rear.
