What kind of 60 ft times are you guys getting?

I finally went to the track and I couldn't manage anything under 2.0s Traction was horrible, I haven't done anything to the rear suspension yet. I never had much trouble on the street when I put on my "hoodlum" tires (265/60/15 Oval track tires, cheap, make lots of smoke and hook better than my 255/45/17's...did I mention cheap)
.

Anyway, I figure I should be getting like 1.7-1.8s 60 ft with the stock turbo, and a 2800 stall TCC. Any ideas, what mods should I make to the rear suspension? Axle snubbers? Air Bags? Pinion Snubber?

Drag Radials are a plan when I can swing the cash.

HELP!

Best ever of 1.64 on the Nitto's. Ususally high 1.6x's though, consistantly..

I remember before the Nitto's I could NEVER get below a 2.0 short time. This was using BFG Radial TA 235/60/15

My suspension is pure stock, with air bags, but they are always empty and I haven't really experimented with them yet..

Oh ya, I use the Stage Right T-Brake, and I am sure that helps plant the tires a bit.

1.61's on 26x12.5x15 ET Streets on a completely stock suspension (no air bags, snubbers, etc..). I'm also running the stock turbo, IC and Converter.
