Help... ran 13.1 at 110mph :( and i'm sc'ed

I have Ess 575kit, fabspeed hfc and xpipe, so I should be around 600bhp. Car is manual, tires are 285 conti 5p's. The track is very crappy (bitburg germany), and most people run .4-.6 slower than on a good track.... I dunno what's going on, why i'm I so slow? This is my first time with M3 to a drag strip, and it certainly takes getting used to launching it, but 13.1 at 110(2.3 60ft)????!!!!! Even if I spin, shouldn't I trap a lot higher??? I was running mix of euro 98 and 102 (like 94/95 US). My buddy in stock C5 Z06 ran the same.

My biggest problem was getting the car not to spin so much... 1st was spinning past 5k rpm (launched at 2.5rpm), second somewhat hooked, and then all shifts like a clock.

ran 13.4 at 109, 13.3 at 109 and 13.1 at 110(about 2.3-2.4 60ft)... I expected the trap to be at least 120mph...

Is this normal? what i'm I missing?

no, it's not normal and even with the worst combination of all factors you should be trapping a lot faster then that! I have a manual M3 and stock I trapped 111mph and with just a VT1-535 I did 119mph, something is wrong somewhere! Good luck finding what it is!
