Need help with traction issues

I have a 2014 GT with automatic. Been to the track twice now. Consistency is a problem. Car 60's pretty good. But 60 to 330 time is where it really varies. Feels like it spins a ways out rather than at the hit. Can you guys help. I even over tire'd the car. 325/50-15 M.T. drag radials. Thanks in advance!

Maybe your driving in the water from your front tires? Go around and back in. Heat the tire, put it up against the convertor, leave on the last yellow. Should go 1.90 something 60' and run 12.80 +- between 108 and 110. At less than 1000'. Weigh the car and get someone to video your rear tires on a run. Drag racing is all about traction and the launch. Good luck.

Your probably breaking loose on that 1-2 auto shift. Not sure how you are going to stop that.
