New PB, but still need help

Watching videos on here and reading a lot has taught me quite a bit, but I was hoping to get some critiques with video from myself this time.

People at the track are useless. All they say (in spanglish) is "full throttle off the line and slip clutch papi". Yea no. That would be a $14,000 mistake if I loop this thing. I have been getting a lot better at going wide open quicker as you can see in the video, but I know there's some room to improve on. If my balls would finally drop, that would be great...

Mods:
-Graves full exhaust
-wire mod
-PC5
-quick shifter
-6.5" stretch
-+2 rear gear, stock front, 525
-lowered 1.5"
-strapped

My a/f seems a little rich to me too. I have a BMC race filter I may throw in there just to see if it leans it out any. I just have a generic map that I downloaded offline.

Need more revs off the line. Your stretched, you have plenty of time if the thing starts to come up to let off a bit. I launch my bike on swb at like 8,000 rpm. Heres a video of my buddy yesterday. You also probably need more gearing too. I am in your boat tho right now, I am a little to easy on the bike still.

definently need more RPM for the launch. I didnt watch in fullscreen, what was your RPM? Looked like around 4500-5k? Stretched on my Gen 1, Im launching at around 9.5k. Work your way up as you get comfortable.

Definitely more revs, your leavin scared. It will take a lot more to wheelie than what your launching. Just practice on leaving harder and harder until you wheelie. The way your setup if you chop the throttle it'll come right down. But to go fast you have to get that mental block that your gonna loop it, out of your head. You need to have faith in your clutch hand to control your front wheel. Just keep practicing man. Your doin good!

Keep up the good man. Practice makes perfect, and unless you have being drag racing for years, you just can't jump on a litre machine and run stupid fast. Just keep at it.

I am not looking forward to seeing how slow I am my first track day this year lol.

Yea the cobalts mine as well. The 750 was a perfect set up. Also with the right power, not to much. The cobalts under the knife again and should be well into the 600 whp make this year. Was about 530 if I had to guess when it went 10.89.
