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.
