You're not very nice or helpful are you? Yes I do know how to drive alright, all I am asking for is some advice for the track, like with my launch and stuff. You don't need to be all rude about it and everything.

launch around 3-4 rpm...
find your sweet spot to where you dont spin

what help do you need? you just need to learn your car. it will come to you.. find the shifting spots, find the feel of the car.

i have never drivin your car so i wouldnt know how it feels.
