This are my mods for making the 1.8

-15inch rims
-Mickey Thompson DOT APRROVED wheels 255/50/15 (this wheel are dot approved but are 0 of treawear)
-LSD INSERT
-COIL OVER ( very low in the front of the car very high in the back of the car )

Bigger tires in front.
Smaller tires in rear (skinnies).
Hard springs in the rear.
Weight savings.
Try lower boost level off the line to keep from spinning as much.
Try some limiting straps up front to keep the front end from unloading the tires.
Try making some changes on the tire pressure too. Lower is not always better. Those tires get too a point where they wad up when the pressure is too low and they don't grip as well.
Wheelie bars could help.
Undeniably, practice makes perfect. Keep trying. You will get better.

Most fwd guys can cut those kind of 60's (1.8s) with just slicks and not tons of suspension work. An LSD is going to help obviously.
With what you have done to the car already you should without a doubt be able to nail down those kind of times.
