Find an abandoned parking lot and practice hole shots. Besides RPM you'll need to get a feel for clutch release anyway. You'll know its limit better with a couple practice launches. But traction will be different than say, the TRACK that you'll actually be racing at right? :gringreen

is your cobra stock? are the other cars stock? the gt (less power) and srt (heavy as hell) will be easier unless they have good mods, if they are stock itll be easy. the 99 cobra will be the more difficult one out of the 3.

You're not launching crap if you're on street tires. Just roll into the throttle to keep from blazing the tires, and stab it once you're out of the hole.
