    You say no rear sway bar ? Do you have the anti roll bar installed ?

    I think you should put the rear sway bar back in possibly go with a bigger one, keep the front one off. Also you may want adjust your pinion angle a bit if you haven't done so. -1 to -3 degrees will help preload your suspension during launches. Other than that may be play with your shock valving.

    BTW subframe connector will do nothing to make you hook better. It may help stiffening the body a bit more but with the 10point cage you are already doing a bit of that. So it is more of a nice to have than a necessity at this point.

    You are missing the most important suspension component, sub frame connectors.

    subframe connectors and reinstall the sway bar. the sway bar actually helps keep the rear level, when launching.

    relocate the heavy battery from the front to the rear if you haven't done so already. Maybe start going tubular k member and control arms in the front to lose more weight there. And at the risk of looking like a ricer, !hood lol

    What kinda 60' do you have? The set-up you have should hook...
    Maybe try some different tires.. maybe try a different launch technique..

    Every f-body needs sub-frames, IMO
