r/t .764
60' 2.406
330 6.617
1/8 10.085
mph 70.21
1/4 15.592

Re: (Hickory)

make sure asr/esp is off.
try letting the clutch out around 3000rpm and don't let the revs drop below 2500 (k03 still makes full boost thre) once the clutch is all the way out floor it and shift right before the tach hits redline as it reads a bit slow.

Re: went back to the track in the stock 1.8t today (Hickory)

You cant drive for $hit, my buddy went 14.68 @ 95.1 stock with a 2.2 60ft. Practice some more...your trap seems really low. I am ok and I went 15.3 with a crappy 2.5 60ft. I wouldnt even post those times if I were you...

Youy are telling him he cant drive but say that you are ok when you only ran 2-3 tenths faster?

Ditto.
As for the original poster the best I can describe it to you is if your bogging at your current launch rpms add another 500 to it and whatever you do don't dump the clutch. Keep practicing slipping the clutch like you have been. Basically what you want to do is let out the clutch about 3/4 of the way when you launch. As soon as you feel the clutch grabbing keep an eye on your revs if you see the needle start to drop give it more gas. After that it's basically feeling your way through the launch. You'll figure it out soon enough. Also remember to adjust your tire pressures for a little extra traction. 20front/40rear are the usual recommendations, I think? Good luck to you on your next attempts.

HA HA HA HA...Right on...he better be glad he's behind his buddies computer or I would punch him to the ground then tell hickory that he just needs a little practice. I have crappy starts myself...but they are getting better...we own one of the hardest cars to launch.
