What shock settings are you using at the drag strip?

Do you turn off the traction control?
When I ran with slicks I turned TC off and left the shocks/struts at 2. next time I am going to do what someone suggested 5 rear 1 front.

Hmmm................trying to understand why 5 in the rear and 1 in the front. I would seem that physics would dictate that you would want the rear soft to squat and the front end stiff so there is little movement ( up and down ) at launch ? Not arguing at all , just trying to grasp the concept.

I know you want the front loose so it rises. I don't agree with the 1 5 set up either but I'll try it. Is better to have compression and rebound settings. You want three front to rise quick go down slow the in the rear squat quick but rise slow
