I don't know how much benefit there is to lowering the pressure on a tire with 40-series sidewall lol. I'm sure there is a lot i can learn if I wanted to go get competitive... but hell, for a random "**** it let's go to the strip" at the last minute without changing a single thing on the car, i was doing a lot better than a lot of people. I could have set my shocks to their softest setting to *try* to get some weight transfer.

zoom2zoom - how often do you go to the track? I know i can get a sub 2.0 60'... but it's going to take more than 5 runs down the track to get it right and get it consistantly.
