- Better Tyres
- Slightly lower pressure up front
- Right launch RPM
- Stiffer suspension that will not allow the front to lift (Raising the rear helps but if you can keep the car even nothin like it.)
However if it is a FWD a lift would lead to a wheel spin and Hop which will mean a slower launch / trap speed.
The key to do the best a the drag is to nail the first 60 feet.

i hear that a good 60' time is very critical for a good trap speed.
i bet it gets harder and harder to launch high powered cars because of traction issues and even though they might get a good time, their trap speed will suffer.
thanks for clarifying.
