Slower Track Times

Went to Atlanta Dragway tonight again and ran slower than the last time I was there. Since then I've added an O/R x pipe, an SR 70mm throttle body, and redone the suspension with springs, shocks struts, LCAs, LCA brackets, adjustable panhard bar.....any ideas why I was slower?
Last time numbers:
R/T: 0.642
60': 2.168
330: 6.092
1/8: 9.370
MPH: 75.38
1000: 12.194
1/4: 14.600
MPH: 93.17

Tonight's numbers:
R/T: 0.280
60': 2.259
330: 6.269
1/8: 9.585
MPH: 74.51
1000: 12.439
1/4: 14.864
92.48

And that was my best run of the night tonight. Others hung around 15.0

Believe it or not with your stiffer suspension you get less squat on launch with means it's easier to spin the tires.

After I did my huge rear suspension build I got slower at the track because I have zero squat on launch and just roast the tires. Now with better tires I know for a fact it'll be faster. You just need to address that issue.
