I would first add Lower Control Arms, stiffen up the rear a bit.
second, I would look at some taller tires, use M&H or Micky Thompsons that will fit the stock 17" rims, the 20" rims are killing you the low profile tire smaller and is giving you a taller gear ratio, and the sidewalls do not flex so it's like driving on solid rubber tires. Are you running stock 3.31 or 3.55?

look are also doing a front sway bar delete, this will help plant the rear end better on a launch.

What is your trap speeds?

Got the LCAs installed.. need to get the relocate brackets on it still and the upper arm. I am running BFG G-Force DRs, 275/40,the 20"s are just for the street.. I agree about the taller tires. I thought running these smaller tires would effectively up my ratio some since they changed my speedometer... I am running 3.55s and I am a vert and I am lowered 2"..
