Help with better e/t and 60ft

Hey everyone I’m new here and I was needing some suggestion on mods to help with my 60ft and e/t. The best 60ft I’ve pulled is a 1.92 while spinning the entire time with drag radials, I’ve tried launching at 3,4,5k but I’ll hook for a sec and start spinning and have a little wheel hop. My best et is a 12.59 at 11mph.

2011 Mustang gt manual
Air raid intake
85mm throttle body
BAMA 91 tune
Sr lowering springs
Mt street radials 275/60/15
3.73 gears
Msd 2 step
Off road h pipe and muffler delete

My shifts are all moderately fast but I just can’t seem to hook off the line, I am new to drag racing on a strip because i am used to the street. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Not an expert but here's my 2Ę

Better Tune - I'd go with LUND

Better LCA/UCA to help with wheel hop...

Prolly do better with Slicks, not a tire guru some other's here are and can chime in with a better recommendation

Muffler delete is doing nothing but giving you a loud car

PRATICE - But not on the street

Get rid of the Radials ASAP, get some bias ply tires. Drag Radials with a stick car is a recipe for disaster, you're either going to break your spider gears or twist an axle tube, I know from experience lol. Radials don't absorb the shock that stick cars have, but bias plys are super soft and will help absorb that shock. It's better to spend $500 now on some bias plys rather than spending $500+ on a new rear end after twisting a tube. Not only that, the slicks will help get that 60' down.

That Bama tune is ****, I'd advise going to AED, Lund, VMP, or MPT(what I currently use). You should be trapping higher than 111 but that also depends on the elevation and Density Altitude. Also consider getting some rear lower control arms and LCA relocation brackets, that should eliminate the wheel hop.

Besides that, just practice. I'm used to the street too and the street is what I love, it was tough getting that 60' time down at the track, but seat time is critical. Also consider having your Axle tubes welded to the pumpkin for preventative measure against twisting an axle tube, because that situation really sucks ass.
