Your clutch must be slipping Sam because your car doesn't have enough power to spin the tires through fourth on dry pavement... Probably not on wet pavement either.
It probably won't even do it in third... On wet pavement.

Agreed, no way his car is spinning in 4th!

Is it bumpy at all? Live axle plus a 4 link set up that these cars have is complete crap. They have terrible wheel hop.

I don't know what is going on with the rear of your car. As was recommended to you in the previous thread, you need to get underneath the car and inspect it for loose or broken components.
Try to get the car moving from a dead stop in FOURTH gear. If it keeps stalling no matter how much gas that you give it, the clutch is good. If it tries to start moving, and the clutch feels like it's slipping, you're going to need a new clutch.

Ok. Did it stall right away or did you give it some gas and did it seem like the clutch was slipping and the engine RPM's increased?

Are you sure that YOUR clutch isn't slipping?

I think your clutch is toast.

Does it smell like burning clutch in and around your car?
Burning clutch smells similar to burning brakes...

not really...the clutches was replaced about 2k miles ago and I've been having the issue about the vibration when taking off and first thought it was clutch chatter

Ok. The car should stall when trying to start from a dead stop in fourth gear. Unless you just tried a 5000 RPM launch.
It's unlikely that you wore out a clutch in 2000 miles but other things can go wrong with them. For instance, the clutch disc can become contaminated with either motor oil or transmission fluid if either of those components develop a leak. Also, the pressure plate can become weak or break altogether.
It sounds like your clutch is slipping but do a little more experimenting to be sure. Or, if this was done by a shop, take it back and have them look at it. If this was done only two months ago, it surely must still be under warranty.

I can take off in fourth in my car no problem and it's a fairly new clutch. The test I was always told was put it in fifth gear and floor it in a high load situation.

Have you looked at the suspension yet??? If the arse end is swaying around, then you probably have a broken link or springs or something. When you put the rear end under torque it will squat out to the broken side and cause the diff to spin to the side with less load.

Is the body swaying from left to right over the tires like when they break a trailing arm in NASCAR, or do you mean something different when you say swaying around?

That is one torquey engine that you have.
Mine wants to stall from a light if I forget and leave it in second or third.

Now it sounds like your clutch may be fine.
Try the method that JDF recommended, in fifth gear.

Eh it's a combination of the 4.10s, feathering the clutch, and working the throttle. Occasionally I forget that I'm in fourth when I coast to a stop and try to take off in it

While you are under the car inspecting the suspension, also check the inside of your rear wheels for an oily residue, and check the pumpkin for any trace of leakage too.

I hope that you are remembering to put the car in first at the drag strip.
That could be part of the problem...
