Your quick af MPH and "slow" 1/4 means your picking up a tonne of speed in the last section of the track (how good's a turbo haha). When NA i did 2.38 60ft and 15.68@86mph, turbo was 2.247 and 13.35@108mph but i was still on launch control for part of the 60ft when boosted. If you nail that launch, and you'll smash into the 12s easy.
Im going back again next week. Just getting practice in for eoym ;) might even be able to take out the interior and have less weight but i doubt it will effect anything if my 60ft is crap

It could make it harder if you're spinning on launch. The first 60ft is all about how quickly you go from standing still to moving a distance .
60ft is about 18m, and the Mirage is a touch under 4m long. The 60ft time would be about where you change from 1st gear into 2nd, so i guess even for the CE we'd have a max limit on time to get there, but even still, cutting down a quarter of a second should take off a full second

Thats what im thinking. If i can get the 60ft down to 2 seconds then that should be enough to get me into the 12s

pulling weight in general will help but better to take it off the back half.

What @DrB said ^

I guess for general information; FWD usually have stiff rear suspension, and mid-range stiff/soft front to absorb the initial lifting of takeoff. Generally they like to keep as much of the weight on the front wheels as possible to keep grip. Street tyres should only go down to about 18psi when cold, because they're designed for normal road use not drags, and they'll loose their grip being any flatter. Proper drag slicks can go to like 8-12psi and grip much much better

Looks like me and @ARC have a bit of work to do
There’s not much more I can add to mine without an lsd, cams, bigger turbo and an ecu upgrade. And I think I’d look at a top to bottom rebuild in that case.
Won’t be under my watch I’m afraid :(
