Default Wrx burning (coolant?) when launching..any suggestions?

I am a sooby newb, but i'm not mechanically retarted. When Launching my car (to redline) , via AP, or even just using my foot, It smokes and i get a burning smell from my turbo, and white smoke comes out... But just driving it, or redlining not launching it doesnt smoke... ONLY launching it seems... smells like coolant, or like a rubberish smell, it smells by the coolant resivour, and the turbo.....Any suggestions would be appreciated..

Are you sure it isn't your clutch burning up?

I don't want to sound like a douche but really you're destroying your car. Do what you want with it but it's not going to operate as "expected" if you're beating the hell out of it. Of course that's not to say you need to drive it like a grandma, but when you're doing something that the dealer would revoke your warranty for odds are it's taking its toll on the car.

It's honestly probably your clutch. It would smell like maple syrup if it was coolant. Not burning rubber.
