i personally slip the clutch (as much as possible being as i have a stg 3 SPEC) until approx 5500 rpm's then drop it completely, shift into 2nd @ 61-6300 than shift @ 62-6500 the rest of the way down the strip (yes i NEED to hit 4th) obviously with th svt you need to hold your gears until nearly rev limit, but try the slipping technique some more and see where that gets you. its netted me a 2.314 as my best 60' on stock 15" rubber.
