how does my car look on the launch

Just was wondering if the way my car launched is ok or do I need to do some more work on it. Just to me it seems like the rear body is lifting and there to much space above the rear wheel I just seem to think the car should squalt more then what it is and you an see the rear leaf springs are spreading pretty good.
I cant seem to upload a pic so I have it in my corral album

hopefully that will work

The lifting at the rear is normal on leaf spring cars with slapper type bars.From what I understand it is due to where they locate the "instant center".This is what mine looks like-
