Not to be a precher, but these cars are not ment for the drag strip. They are set up for road course. I have to believe that shocks will help alot, you need that ass end to squat down and transfer weight. That comdined with softer drag type tires should do the trick. You can't pull one G in the corner on drag slicks and you can't pull a nasty holeshot (for the most part) with road race tires. If I am wrong go ahead and bitch at me and set me straight.
