I don't "Pop" the clutch unless I'm trying to do a burnout. A much more effective technique is to learn to ride the clutch just enough to prevent wheelspin.

On the track (drag radials, of course) I launch somewhere between 4500-5000 rpms depending on how the track is prepped, and slip the clutch just enough to keep from just spinning the tires. I get some chirping, but don't just sit and spin.

It takes some practice, but all the guys who run really good 60ft times for their mods use this technique.

If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.
