it sounds like you need a lot of practice. find someplace where you can work on launching and shifting.
also unless the TC was the brand new one they have a 160hp 2.4L stock. I dont know how well they respond to mods though... they are a little heavier than your ST.
keep working on it and at least get an intake if you dont have one already
