so i have alot invested into the suspension of this car. it does have a full pi swap and its not insane fast so it shouldnt be spinning so bad. Heres what i have as far as suspension.
Steeda K- member
Steeda strut tower brace,
Steeda full length welded sub frame connecters
Steeda bumpstear
Maximum Motorsport caster/camber,
Maximum Motorsport front and rear sway bars
Steeda coil overs in front with steeda pro springs
Steeda offset bushings
40 series flowmaster mufflers
Tokico Illumina 5 way adjustable shocks/struts (front and rear)
Eibach sportline springs in rear
Steeda X2 ball joints
Steeda Adjustable rear lower control arms
Steeda G-trac bar
Nitto 555r's on 18 psi for launch

She handles like no other but as far as drag, or sprinting she spins all the way through first and most of second. She used to bite okay but now just spin. I have my tokikos at setting 1 in the front and 3 in the rear. any ideas and how low should my car be for the best launch? from ground to fender i mean? any tips would be great especially on the setting my tokikos should be. Also i have no backseats or anythign in my trunk.

Yeah sounds like you aren't squating. Also, could be your launch and tire combo. Alot goes into it all.

No reason he cant get 1.7-1.8 6o times. he has very little rear suspension done.

To the OP, what size tires are out back? Doesnt look like much sidewall is there but its hard to tell, increasing the aspect ration a lil should help some. Might wanna run a lil more psi too, 18 may be too low.

I never said he couldent,But hes never going to see a short time like that unless hes got a set of Sticky tires.a taller side wall may help but if its a street tire its still going to squirm.

Finish up your rear suspension. You've got LCAs, which is a good start, but you need to either get a setup that gets rid of the UCAs (i.e. torque arm/panhard bar), or, at the very least, get some good adjustable/spherical joint UCAs.

Considering all the money you've invested in suspension thus far, I'd spring for the torque arm.

The 555s are just street tires. If you have spare wheels for drag I wouldnt even run the 555Rs, get a better DR like MTs or something. Your not gonna put any decent power down on street tires.
