Sounds like it topped out the struts hard, and unloaded the car.

From the pictures, it looks like the car has 14" front coilover springs. It might be time to change to a 12" spring, and tighten up the struts some.

Juice I think tires just need a couple passes on them to break end. They mixed street tires with slicks. Track sucked. This is usually a top line track. A couple of guys I know with bracket pro radials couldn't even try to hook on nitrous. They ran N/A. Tune on our car was really close. Could have added 1 deg timing   Just a hint of fuel ring. Air ended up at 72 grains. 3300da
