Looked good! Made some good improvements in cutting closer to cones in your last 2 runs. Were all the runs clean?
Few things I noticed: You're milking your clutch off the line... try launching it and you'll cut at least 0.3-0.4 off your times I'd estimate. I normally launch between 2500 and 3000 rpms. You don't just dump the clutch completely(though that does work), you slip it enough to hear some tire squeal until it's all the way out. Hard to explain, but dump it too fast, you'll likely get some wheel hop. Dump it too slowly and you hear "whiirrrrrr" much like in your videos. I probably let my clutch out over the course of about 0.5 seconds.
Also maybe it's just the angle, but pull your steering wheel closer to you and/or move the seat as close to the wheel as possible. You'd be surprised at how much of a difference this makes... you feel more "connected" to the car. It's much in the same as when you're playing a racing game 15ft from the TV vs sitting 5ft from it.
I have the steering column adjusted as close to me as possible(I'd pull it even further toward me if it were possible), and move my seat about 2-3 notches further forward than normal driving. My limiting thing is my legs, I can't go further forward and be comfortable hitting the clutch. If I were road racing I'd probably only be 1-2 notches forward for more long term comfort.
