Way back, I got my clock cleaned really good by an El Camino with a 427 that didn't have any traction problems at all on the street. Friends said that he had weighted his tail gate, and then secured it in the down position. He added very little overall weight, but the weight he did add was far to the rear of the vehicle. I would also go for sticky tires, maybe some BFG Drag Radials (or whatever favorite brand you have) in the largest size that fits comfortably . You will still be able to blow them away if you try, but they do add quite a bit more bite. If nothing else, start the race from a roll.
