Do not spin the tires and make good shifts you`ll be fine.You got a lot of torque on your side.

yea ive got the same problem.

i have a 2004 cobra, so its hard for me to launch bcuz the supercharger has to wind up a bit before all the boost kicks in. my buddy who has a 01 GT with bolt-ons beat me off the line once. all i can rely on is my top end speed to catch up. most of my races have been from a roll. if any of you terminator cobras have a certain way of lauching let me know!

Try riding the clutch just enough to get the car to hook. If you are going to go to track alot, you might want to upgrade your clutch. If you know someone with slicks or drag radials see if you can use them. Of course I say this and I can't get my car to hook very good either.

Take the rpms up to 2 to 25 gs ride the clutch so u don;t spin. go in the burn out box to heat ur tires so they hook up good

With out slicks or a high perf clutch all I can say is good luck. Take it easy and feel it out with some few practice runs if you can before you race anyone. IMHO its best to feel it for yourself. You don't want to be slipping your tires excessively.
