Post Redline Launch

Hypothetically speaking ( ), would redline launching cause any damage to my car? I'm sure it'll wear out the clutch faster, but will it mess up anything else? Thanks!

Well, I would think the sudden jolt at that amout of RPM's, after a few times would damage your differentials. Transfering that much torqe all at once can't be good for them. I know they are built fairly well, but still I wouldn't recommend it.

That reminds me off the first time I tried to burn-out in AWD... Didn't redline it, but still I looooooove the smell of burning clutch! I'm a pirate.

Well...here goes my opinion....
I drag race my subaru quite often..
stock clutch..
mods...ganz flo, amsoil filter, ralispec exhaust, jc's torque chip...
I dump the clutch at 5k every time I leave the line...and the car is fine...
front tires spin a few times then.. bahhhh its off like a rocket.
cant smell any evidence of a smoked up clutch... 60ft times are a consistent 2.07ish
15.4 @86mph...redline shifts...havent played much with that.

launching at high rpm isn't nearly as likely to break the gearbox as powershifting is, especially the 1-2 shift.

Camaroman I bet you will have better times if you launch it right and not only that, but your tranny will actually last much, much longer... although with all that dumping it's probably taken its toll already... Acccckkkk stress fractures

With a mere GanzFlow, Stromung Dual Tip, and K&N I was running a 15.690 without 5K drop (heh, I was more like a 4K drop )...But I wouldn't have done that if my tires weren't wet from the water pit...Got some spin, though

So whats the "correct" way to launch the car?
If you can beat a 2.078 60ft time w/ similar mods...let me know....
and I dont want to change clutches every two weeks either.

I got a 2.07 as well in 60ft time but ended up with a 15.79 overall. I only have a scoobysport muffler in my '99RS. I then drove my friends '00RS with a Ganzflow intake and Apex'i cat back N1 and got a 15.47 time. I dumped the clutch at ~4500RPM. The problem with that is that it bogs when you do that. I'm gonna try slipping the clutch next time to compare the results.

There is someone here who got a 15.4 stock. I dont know how the hell thats possible. I guess he shifts much faster or launches much better with out the bog.

start the engine around 4k...then slip the clutch as you gently add more throttle. Once you work it right, you will smell that clutch, but you will go like a rocket, cause doing it right, you're RPM's won't dip below 4k, which is where max torque is...

I'm really excited to see what this thing will run at Bandimere tomorrow. After that, it probably won't be run again until the turbo build up. Pray for me guys...have interview tomorrow. Time's at bandi were 16.9 with just a hacked stock intake, slipping clutch, and cat back. exhaust. That's about a 16.0 at sea level.

My friend with a MY99 RS did a 15.2 (uncorrected) with a 6k dump, bone stock, in full trim and a few extra things dumped in the trunk. His runs after that were 15.6 and 15.7 (consistantly). Any signs of damage? Not that he knows of.
