Hold brake, push gas to raise rpm....release brake and mash gas pedal.Can you elaborate a bit more? I have a A\T and I'd like to know how does one launch without having a M\T
It's not going to hurt anything ...I was afraid you were going to say hold the brakes first... isn't that putting pressure on the brakes?
I'd say it's no worse than any other car; as long as you aren't flooring it without disengaging the clutch all the way.Bonus question: How bad is launching for the clutch in a m/t? Whenever I read about people wanting to know the best way to launch, all I can think of is "Oh god no! The clutch!".
No worse than any other sort of spirited driving. As long as you aren't power launching at every light I don't see us cooking our clutches that much faster.Bonus question: How bad is launching for the clutch in a m/t?

your question is a little difficult to answer ... There are many things that dictate a great launch ... 60ft time ... with my stick cars . track prep for one ... If you are on stock tires at a prepped track ..... i would start with a lower launch rpm ... and incrementally step it up .... until you get a solid not tire blazing launch .... like most have stated getting on boost late .... well your going to be a turd out of the hole .... you hit it to hard and well .... you will let the smoke out of the tires .... now if you want to stop wheel hop ... ( this is track only ) you would need to stop the rear from squatting or front from lifting .... whats happening is your unloading the tires all that nice engine weight is being transferred to the rear ... last time i checked the rear tires are only there to roll on .... I don't know whats out there for the VT-T but if you wanna get the best possible launch .... no front lift and or rear squat ...Those of you who have went to the 1/4 mile, what are you launching at? How violent is the wheel hop?
