Hey guys, I have a 2001 GTI 1.8T with an APR 93 Oct. Chip and a BMC Intake. I went to the track with the GTI for the first time last night and I just couldn't seem to launch the car correctly. My 60' foot times were horrible 2.55-2.6 seconds. I either just light up the tires or bog of the line. I can't seem to find the optimum RPM to launch the car. Can you guys give me advice on how to launch the car? At what RPM and whether to slip it or just dump it? Thanks.

Re: Need Advice on Drag Launches (Chi-Town GTI)

If you were at GLD, then I find the best is to set rpms at 2800 and feather it till you move off and then floor it thru into 2nd......
Are you coming out this weekend?
I'll be there Sunday

Re: Need Advice on Drag Launches (FYGTBUG)

Yeah I was there last night. There were tons of cars. The traction last night was horrible. I have a friend with a SC'd Civic Si running high 15's wheel hopping like crazy and couldn't get any grip. Well till what time are they open this weekend? Hopefully the entrance fee will still be $12. Thanks for the advice i'll try that as soon as I get to the track.
