good stuff my man,

... I had gone to our drag strip here in phoenix last, got raped due to my noobishnessness.
I now know that droping the clutch at 3k has a higher probability in getting better numbers yo.

The next question is, when shifting afterwards ... is it recommended to let off the clutch slightly. I seemed to have been letting off it alot since I did miss engaging third gear in one of my runs for not letting off the clutch enough? Any input on this?
