you should probably slip the clutch rather than just popping it out.

with a couple of solid stage booster rockets, that should do ya just fine.


seriously, slipping the clutch will do less wear and tear on the internals of the drivetrain, and will be better in the long run. Do a search as this has been covered numerous times.

I generally hold the engine at about 3.5 grand, let it slip till it starts moving and then drop it the rest of the way. the car won't bog down and its easier on the tranny.

youll get much faster times if you do what he said. dropping the clutch you just bogg to much, which leads to crappy times.

and an unhappy tranny...

for shifting into higher gears I usually leave my foot on the gass and slip away at the clutch. usually not lifting the clutch too far. its very fast very responsive and very cool the car will pull right away on shifts.
