Launching Question

Hey guys, I know yall have probably been through this,so please either answer my question or show me where to look.I just got a 07 with a stick.I have had fast things and drag raced since I was 16.They always had a auto though.Shifting I am getting better and quicker,but my question is do I hold the clutch all the way in hold the revs and just dump it?Or, hold the clutch almost before it starts pulling?Do I use the brake at all? THANKS GUYS GOD BLESS

You have to find the 'sweet spot' that the car likes. You can try to dump the clutch at around 2500 or so and see if you can get a hook out of it, but I think on street tires, your not going to be able to. The best is to slip the clutch at around 3500-4500 rpm, its hard on the clutch but thats probably the best way to get off the line with street tires.

Launch like you are driving in the rain if your on street tires. Slip the clutch out easily but try to accelerate as fast as the tires will take. If you have DR's or slicks you can get more aggressive but I wouldn't dump the clutch. With mod motors they don't make torque down low so if you bog the motor off the line it kills the whole run.
