7.5k launch? got money for a new clutch?

if i launch at anything over 2k rpm will just sit there spinning.

it will change for everyone depending on traction, ect.

but i think the best would be hold the ebrake a bit to load the suspension and take off at ~3k. (don't do this long as you will kill your clutch)

take your car to a test and tune and try different things to see what nets you the best 60ft times.

When I autocross I usually launch around 3k, but I am also running azenis 615k's which are a lot grippier than your average street tire

take it on a country road and practice, every clutch is different and tire grip is different.

I have the same tires on 16s for autoX and I launch at around 3-3500, or at 4500 when I had 18s lol
