I agree completely, when you have a clutch that grabs with no play to allow for slippage it makes things tough. Unfortunately that means you have more clutch than you do engine and drive train.
For some it may not make sense to compare a car to a motorcycle, but I have a point that shares a similarity between the two. I used to drag race bikes. I did not use wheelie bars or slicks. I also kept my swing arm as close to stock as I could. I was a grudge racer, and sleepers get races.
Back to the point. I was running low 8 sec on a naturally aspirated Hayabusa. That isn't a hard feat to achieve. I found myself with a problem though. The stock clutch would burn up after a weekend of qualifying and then through the eliminations. I added a stronger clutch that would give me longer life, and grab harder.
On my first test hit I realized that my clutch was an on and off switch. I had a bike that hooked hard. My job was to find the balance point of wheelies and launching. I ended up launching at a much lower RPM to control the bike. That led to the engine bogging. My ETs suffered.
My next option was to use stock springs with aggressive clutch plates. I had more clutch than motor with the higher rate springs. With the stock springs I could launch at a higher RPM and control the bike. My 60ft times dropped, which shaved a bit off of my 1/4 mile time.
Right now you have more clutch than you do power. That is the only answer I can assume without putting my eyes on the car while you make a pass.
