Angry Sucky day at track!!

Well I went to Lebanon Valley today. Shitty day.
When I was running the stock P-Zeros at the rear in the summer I was able to cut quite a few 2.0 60fts but now I got the 315 Nitto NT05R drag radials and I have only been able to muster 1.9's
I even tried for the hell of it running using the computers launch control. Tried three times three differents attempts of how much to slip clutch and that was horrible. Computer pulls all the power and car practically dies taking off.
Launching car with everything turned off (TC & Stab) I got the 1.9s
I launched at about 3500rpm and slipped clutch a little.
Might of helped if I heated tires more but car started doing one wheel wonder burn outs today so thought spinning one tire is pointless.
Today was second time at the track with my new clutch and drag radials. First time I only got one run though so with today I have a totally of 6 runs with setup.
Runs:
with TC & Stab off -
--1st day I ran 11.69 @ 123mph (1.934 60ft)
--2nd day I ran 11.80 @ 120mph (1.922 60ft) 2nd to last run
--2nd day I ran 11.74 @ 122mph (1.984 60ft) last run

runs with launch control on 2nd day were before those runs and were horrible had 2.1 to 2.3 60fts haha

Mods:
Vortech 3.33" pulley
2" Headers
CoolingMist Meth injection
315 NT05R Drag Radials
ZR1 Twin Disc Clutch light weight flywheel

Tried to get video but person I ask to video this is all they took.

Beware of one wheel burnouts. Try lower psi in driver side rear than passenger. If this does not work have the rear checked. I blew my rear and it did the one wheel burnouts. Had to replace rear, cound not be fixed. Went with a nine inch.
