Yea it will, but in my experience, it takes just a little more of a pause at the catch point to be able to let the clutch out without bogging. Just a little hesitation and you're good. You just have to get the feel for it so that you don't keep the clutch at the catch point longer than you need to.

There's really no other solution to it; in order to keep the car from bogging down, your speed needs to match the RPMs of the engine when you engage (let off) the clutch, and in order for that to happen, you HAVE to slip the clutch. If you want to start at 3k RPMs, you've got to slip the clutch more than if you want to start at 1500 RPMs.
