Did I do something wrong?

Having come across a time slip from a day at Milan drag way in MI, it got me thinking... why did I get such a crap time? I had sunoco race gas, meth mix of 80%, JB4 map 3, catless DP, and DCI. Not wanting to break anything or cause much premature wear, the hardest launch I did was only 3k. My best time I was able to achieve was a 13.2, which needless to say is pretty sh**ty considering the mods I have. I did change the settings in the JB to account for the higher octane gas and meth mixture, but maybe I did it wrong? It didn't feel any faster than 93 oct and my normal 60% meth map 3. I do have a manual as well. Anybody think this is a "decent" time for not doing a hard launch, or can it be assumed I screwed a setting up? Not sure if I should move this to a different section or not, so just advise if so.

Thanks guys!

What were you expecting.......these are passenger cars not drag racers......optimum timing will always come from the driver.

Yes, I understand these are family sedans Kevin. I was just trying to gauge other drivers' experiences with going to the track and seeing what kind of results they had. From reading various posts' I thought I would have had a better time, but I was unsure of how hard everybody launches their cars. I realize people are good at flaming others, but that doesn't result in someone trying to find things out, which is one of the purposes of this site, no? Thanks for your input gunsekun, I figured it was the reason.
