shallow stage is worth a few tenths. ( just barely turning the second light on ) that alone would almost get you into the 9's. a squeek from the tires is another tenth. spinning more than a couple of revolutions can be up to a second slower.

9.40 @ 76 mph in the 1/4?.......somethin' don't sound right. 9.40 should be way faster.

180* thermostat would probably be beneficial to you, and they are cheap

Those are my only mods. I just feel like I'm not putting down the proper horsepower. I will admit it's my first time at the track and my reaction time was pretty bad .
Little things add up fast, but reaction time has zero affect on ET. You can sit on the starting line for 5 seconds and the only number on the slip that will change is R/T.

Stage as shallow as possible by just bumping in to the second bulb after you light the pre-stage. This gives you a "run" at the actual starting line. DA also plays a big part. Depending on conditions, every 1000ft on DA can sap a tenth......ball park figure.
