The red ink is quite thin, correct? At least as compared to the white. I'd suggest a finer mesh. Try something north of 55T. I use 77T (USA 200).

Also, the squeegee can "stumble" when hitting a large horizontal element in the design straight on, so it is usually best to hold the squeegee somewhat "crooked," or at a slight angle to such design elements. Such stumbling can cause the squeegee to "bite" into the mesh and force ink all the way through the garment, even with thick white ink.
