Looking for tips on the dragstrip

I recently went to the track. I managed to get 11.0 sec @ 128mph time slip. I would like to know at 129mph capable of a 10 second run. I attached a photo of my timeslip. Mods is just catless dp and E85 tune on BM3. I was shifting at redline . Any tips to go faster ? really would like to get into the 10s if possible.

330= 4.767 4.915 4.765
1/8= 7.190 7.401 7.243
mph= 101.74 100.02 100.30
1000'= 9.270 9.506 9.334
1/4= 11.027 11.275 11.104
mph= 128.66 127.82 127.62

Power peaks at 6000rpm and the turbos run out of steam at 6500rpm, try shifting there.

I don't think you should be shifting at redline beyond the first two gears.

Have you ever dyno'd the E85 BM3 tune to see where the peak power is?

I'm on a stock tune and although I don't drag race the car, my shift point is around 7100 rpm on 3rd +

No have not had it on a dyno. Had a conversation with my tuner the other day and he also said to shift at 6500rpm. Im going to try that next time.
