Question How do i freaken launch

Hey guys i really need help w/ my launch. For the most part i know that slipping the clutch is best, but what rpm do u hold it at how fast do u slip the clutch etc. Ive tried holding it at 3k and 4k as i slip the clutch but to no evail i feel like im launching slow. My friend has seen some dude launch his stock wrx by slipping his clutch and this fool just ripped right out of the gate, i want to be able to do that. I know practice makes perfect ive been practicing, but u know what practice aint squat without proper technique.

So i beg of all u wrx gods help me in my quest for a better launch.
