    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
