hit the drag strip yet another disappointment

Ok guys as usual i need some input on this.I went to englishtown this evening and only ran a 13.6 with a 1.8 60ft @101 MPH.MY problem is that my third gear which happens to be also my strongest and most important gear is locking up on meI know my car can run 12's but i am not able to do this since i have to slow down and fuss with my third which is being very reluctant to change under high rpm 6900.I am running a ACT 6 puck with rps pressure plate exedy flywheel.Is the mix and match causing this, or am i pushing a little more power than the stock tranny can handle or do my clutch just needs adjusting.
Oh also on this run i hesitated like about a second to get third since it was giving me a pretty hard time to change, which would have drop my time and increase my trap speed.

I cant believe you have an aftermarket clutch in that thing. You do realize that its best to stay with stock clutch with stock tranny? I really hope you dont have to go through yet another tranny. You could have a bad 3rd gear.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

but the thing is that i don't have any problems geting into third driving on the streets and shifts perfectly fine. should i put in a act street disc then?
Also would stock clutch be able to hold the power and torque?
