1) Make sure you are not running with TCS on
2) Make sure your car is shifting at the right rpms for your combo, maybe some quicker blowered guys can suggest what they use.
3) Your short times should be at least 1.8's. Make sure you are getting real heat into those tires, and make sure you are lining up in the groove. Are you spinning or does it dead hook? You need to know.
4) Fix whatever is not right. Go back. Repeat.
100% agree.
You have an issue that you need to sort out. Sometimes it's not always as easy as "buy parts, run fast".
