    You should be there easy
    Sticky tires help a lot, just be easy on the 10-bolt

    its all in the 60'

    lca relocation brackets and dr's cutting 1.8's yes.
    If you can cut 1.8's as is then yes, as you sit you should be happy to get 13 flat if you have never been to the track.

    a stronger rear with 4.30's and some DR's should be pretty much all you'd need if' you've already run 12.8 on street tires and stock rear. Look at it this way. Drag launching your car will eventually result in a new rear anyway. If preventative action also happens to get you to your 12.5 goal or better then wouldn't it be the best course of action?
