Stock clutch, no real mods, I found that @3000, the clutch took a little bit to grab. Might be the cold weather too.

Rev limiter + a little clutch slip = good launch for me. I dont endorse this as it will prematurely wear out the clutch. Warning, disclaimer, dont do this at home, yadda, yadda, so fourth, and so on.

At rally-cross's I launch it at 4200. Ya, I realize it is not the smartest way to launch it, but it is the most effective. I now have a completely new clutch assembly...had a severely warped fly-wheel among other things.

I *barely* slip it at 4000rpm and then stand on the gas as the clutch grabs.
