Default 2010 WRX Sedan 1/8 Mile UGHHHH!!!!

Today I went to Irwindale 1/8th mile drag strip. IM PISSED!!!! haha my fastest time there before today was an 8.989 completely stock. I've gone stage 1 since and today I was using launch control at 5500 rpm. Everything stock except exhaust. It was a straight dp. STOCK DP. I'm happy and upset. Because since the stage 1, i did literally no joke 3 passes, all of which were somewhere in the 8.7s. I want to go to the the 8.5s!!! haha without going to stage 2. also all of my 60' were somwhere in the 1.8s. I mean granted I'm obviously a very consistent driver because all 3 passes were pretty much the same but god darn it i want it to be faster... its never enough haha
HERE IS A LINK TO A VIDEO OF MY BEST PASS

and burn up his stock clutch in no time lol raising the air pressure seems to work bc it gives the tires a little spin action so his clutch doesn't take the brunt of the launch as much...6k seems a little too high on a stock clutch wrx, maybe the sti can handle it but I found with mine the clutch hates anything past 5200 lol
