Dear Feng,

I believe that with the latest commit to the development version the problem should be resolved. For

exp = (mc + GSD[k1]).GAD[c[li3]].(mc + GSD[k1 + k2 + p - q]).GAD[
c[ga]].(-mc + GSD[p] - GSD[q]).GA[5].(mc + GSD[p] + GSD[q]).GAD[
c[li2]].(-mc + GSD[k2]).GAD[li2].(mc + GSD[p] + GSD[q]).GA[

res = AbsoluteTiming[DiracTrace[exp, DiracTraceEvaluate -> True]];
res // First

I obtain 33.27 seconds on my Thinkpad X230 and Mathematica 11.0

Running the same code with FeynCalc 4.2.0 on Mathematica 5.2 the timing is

118.77 seconds.

So FeynCalc 9.1 is now factor 3.5 faster.

If one simplifies the calculation by removing the c-Head:

exp2 = (mc + GSD[k1]).GAD[li3].(mc + GSD[k1 + k2 + p - q]).GAD[
ga].(-mc + GSD[p] - GSD[q]).GA[5].(mc + GSD[p] + GSD[q]).GAD[
li2].(-mc + GSD[k2]).GAD[li2].(mc + GSD[p] + GSD[q]).GA[
FCI

res = AbsoluteTiming[DiracTrace[exp2, DiracTraceEvaluate -> True]];
res // First

then FeynCalc 9.1 needs only 2.08 seconds, while FeynCalc 4.2.0 requires 5.96.

Cheers
