    Wow, I didn't know that...ha ha i retarded. I lowered my car and never changed the shocks and struts, I know thay are totally worn out. But I never knew it would make a track differance.
    At the track I couldn't pull better then 13.9 @107 with 2.54 60' and I am trying to find out why I have such bad traction.

    Two things you must do to regain or improve your traction with a lowered car. Change your shocks, I suggest Tokico Illumina in the rear and Tokico Blue in the front. Next get yourself some LCA lowering brackets. That should cure your 60 ft blues.
    P.S. The best drag shocks are QA1 adjustable shocks and the best handling shocks are Koni's.
