Traction control off. You can learn a launch where it will not bog nor rip the tires loose. At the same time as this you have to slip clutch a little. Like tryng to take off hard but you know that if you just dump the clutch your not going anywhere. If you ride motor cycles you would know exactly what I'm talking about. (God.....i hope he has a stick explaining it this way!)

If automatic. Again traction cotrol off. Start in first, manualy shift to 2ndthe then slamback down to first after trans shifts. As long as your foot is to the floor it will lock into 2nd gear until you shift it into 3rd.

93' LX hatch, 460 w/150 plate, TH400, 9" w/ 3.60 spool. Best (so far!) of [email protected] 146 mph with 1.40 spinning 60' on steel heads
Been saying single digit coming for 3 years.....guess I finally made it!
