Traction problems with a 86 CRX Si

When my friend and I leave work at 2 in the morning, we speed home. I usually leave the light at around 4500 - 5500 rpm. I will spin the wheels but the car will still move forward and I will only chirp second. For the last couple days I launch the same way but when I change to second I lose all forward movement and I just burnout for about 2 or 3 seconds. I shift at 7000 rpm and by the time I get into 2nd gear i am at 6200 rpm. My rpm is around 6700 to 7000 when my car regains traction. Anyone have any idea why this would happen. I know the car manual says my redline is at 6500 but the car will go up to 7300. Also I don't know what type of clutch the car has but it will hold whatever you throw at it.

If you're still getiing wheelspin, it sounds more like a tire concern than your engine or clutch. If the clutch was burnt out, it would continue to rev, but there would be no burnout. Perhaps the road was either wet or slick with something? What about your tread depth on the tire? These are my thoughts.

If you always take off like that id say youve slowly (or not so slowly) worn out your tyres, with spirited driving it dont take too long

i've got some kumhoe's on my crx, they are nice, but it depends on what kind of driving you do.

I personally like toyo tires, I have also heard very good things about yokohama tires, oversized roms will also help with traction.
