confused I am getting desperate!!

Ive talked to several people about this, and they know no more than me. I crave acceleration in my car, and its not giving me any. My car is so slow off the line. I know its a 3spd auto which sucks, but still, there has to be something i can do to get this thing off the line faster. I recently got BFGoodrich Comp T/A's put on, 4 of them, thinking if i got new tires, that would help. Well, im sure it did, but nothing to noticable. I mean, im getting blown away by like Dodge Omnis and Plymouth Reliants. Whats up with that? its embarrasing. Its a 4 cyl, but it should still perform better i think. If anyone can tell me anything, PLEASE DO!!!! I NEED HELP!!!!!!!! thank you guys so much!
