I figured soft on the rear to improve wieght transfer off the launch.
Was just messing around with settings so dunno. Take it with a grain of salt.

What I noticed with my boss at the drags.
If I launched with the track key rev limiter it hit the tires hard and broke loose. If I launched by holding the same RPM manually I could hook better.
The stock radials launched better with lower pressures. 18 PSI was the lowest I tried. I did not notice an improvement below 24 PSI
Any time but the stock Pirelli hook better than the stock tires. Ditto NT-01s hooked better than stock.
If you have the Torsen differential, consider limiting drag launches. The worsen has proven to be a great road course differential but gives up easily at the drag strip. Broken Part kind of giving up.
JW Last said:Thanks TMSBOSS. I don't plan on any clutch dumping launches, not real worried about 60' times. Moderate rpm drive it out of the hole then let the turbos do their thing. Right now this car just insanely spins the tires as the boost comes on which leads to a lot of short shifting on my part. Having a set of 19" MT drag radials mounted tonight....hopefully that will help some.
The drag radials will help traction a lot. They will also increase stress on the Torsen.
When I was doing the drag thing, I considered a complete axel from FRPP. Get the ratio I wanted and less than $2k. Then I stopped going to the drags. Just too crowded, spent all day for 5 runs was not fun.
Good luck with your turbo Boss.
