The launch trim is probably just a little hot side.

Or then elevator trim is little different from JGs other Supra. These differences are very different to measure. You just have to trim the plane hotter and hotter, and them come little back.

This makes me think how you use launch camber in launch? You should have a setting that gives both - max tension and adequate stability - all through the launch. If not, then there is something wrong in the basic launch dynamics. Maybe you are trying to achieve launch trim with combination of relatively forward hook position and some up trim?

Some of us have then more complicated launch set ups. I use 2 stage setup with 2 launch phases. The second phase has less camber, but the second launch phase with less camber is not for stability, it is used for more speed.
