Re: launching.. i know its been beaten.. but look (GTIX-flow'in)

just feather(slowly release) the cluth as your giving the car gas, instead of just releasing the clutch and gassing it.
basically u gotta ride the clutch until u get traction.

Re: launching.. i know its been beaten.. but look (lionheart)

Depends....on your tires, on your tire pressure, and the road conditions and temp....
at the strip, I launch at 4200RPMs, clutch dump, 18PSI in the fronts, very little wheelspin..... 2.2 60 foots...on street tires with an open diff (no quaife).
No way I could do anywhere near that on the street with normal pressure though....

He's right about easing the clutch out. with the 16v pressure plate, I can ease it into a perfect burnout or a perfect takeoff with ease.
