That initial link posted included more info..

You can get a lot better "launch" by turning off the traction control, and "tuning" can get you firmer & quicker shifting. For many but not all yet the top RPM limit can be changed as well. Not so sure about the neutral limit, just hitting the pedal gets spinning tires in the first couple gears for most - can't do much better than that and engine mount changes are used to help put the power down.

If you want to rev it to the roof and watch it blow up in neutral, there was a good video linked in the 'fails' thread of a Honda doing that at a cruise in.

if your car has little power and a lot of traction, you need to rev up higher to get a better launch. that is my problem. i can launch my car at much higher RPM but its limited so i get slow underwhelming launches.
Then here's my solution for you: Do a Snorkel Delete, and add... you know what, on second thought, just remove the air filter entirely, that'll get rid of restriction. Then add... I mean remove your exhaust, from the cat-back. That'll get rid of restriction. You'll really lay some rubber now. Then do a full interior gut... Fly to the moon!

I don't see why you guys are on this guy so ridiculously hard. Have some decency...honestly I feel like intervention by mod / admin should have happened a while ago. The question was made, just because you guys think it's useless doesn't mean he has to.

I've read a couple times about guys dumping the clutch with the MTX75 around 4800 for optimal launch at the drag strip, and even though the tires spin at lower RPM launches the engine still bogs as the RPM is too low once traction is available.

This thread quickly turned into a two person argument immediately with each of them taking jabs at each other. I think it is ridiculous to continue or for people to chime in the same way.

You are going to destroy your.clutches....go to the dragracing base for tips on launching the dct....are you disabling traction control
