Default How do i get a good launch!?

I know some you have different techniques but ive tried some.... every time i hold the rev at 4, let the clutch go, and floor it at the same time, the car bogs, instead of jetting out... but when i put the rev at 5 1/2, and do the same, then the car does pretty well, but 5 1/2 seems kind of high considering the redline is 7... help me out plzzz! thx

Blip the throttle, then floor it and when the revs get to 5,000 start slipping the clutch out until you feel the car move, then let it all the way out.

I do this and I pull 1.7 and 1.8 60 foot times. I usually get some wheelspin as well. Sometimes the car torques over to the right side of the road.

This seems to work for me.

hehe Kenshiro that's how I learned to drive stick

I do think it's the best way though. This motor needs rev's to get out of the hole...

Just change the clutch along with the brakepads

I know man. I'm worried that I'll need a new clutch soon. This one time I was racing this LS1 firebird and I slipped the clutch at 7,000rpm and it burnt like crazy and I couldn't get the clutch to engage for like 30 seconds. I think I'll benefit from a new clutch anyway. I can't decide if I should get a heavier duty clutch though cuz I think it might break the tranny. Did you ever notice that if you don't slip the clutch in the WRX it's really jerky? I pretty much slip after every shift cuz I hate the jerky ride.

nnn, but kenshiro's way is probably the fastest launch without damage to the drive train (less clutch). instead of blipping first, i rev it a few times and hold the rpm at about 5k, then as I slip the clutch, as i give it a tad more rpm to about 5.5k and as soon as i feel the car moving, i let the clutch out quickly and smoothly. i get a tiny chirp. no burnt clutch smell at all.

unless you drop the clutch from 4k rpm, you will bog if you just let out the clutch quickly.

it also depends on your exhaust setup too. if you have a high flow exhaust without the silencer in place, you will loose a ton to bottomend torque ending up with a bog.


no, your shift is too fast. you shouldnt get any jerky feel after each shift.

Generally, you need to hold revs about 1,000 rpm above the spool point and slip it out until you are rolling good enough that your rpms are at the spool point. (ie., if you spool at 3k, slip starting at 4k and ease it out until you are at 3k).

The best way i found yet is to rev up to 5500 and just dump the clutch. the car doesn't bog down and it get great 60' foot times. my car is bone stock and i've got a 1.9 in the 60' foot. sure its rough but if your going to race you just have to deal with it.

I raced an older integra with a FMIC and a giant greddy turbo from a roll the other night. Kept up with him until fourth gear :\
