On a good day I manage to get it all the way down to 8.4. I don't do any special launching technique though, just step on the gas and go! I'm sure I could do better if I had a launch technique, but I don't feel like damaging the car just for a few tenths of a second shaved off my 0-60.
Hold the brake and the gas at the same time. When you are ready to go, let off the brake, and floor it. It will shave a few tenths off, and is actually better than just stabing the throttle.
