    It's funny to see all the WRX owners not hitting low 14's and blaming the car or false advertising Makes are cars look bad and slower then they actually are.. I don't mind .. I get one of these witnesses and race me .. and in the end say... DAMN! what mods did you do to your wrx or STi ? I smiled and replied... "nothing" it's all about knowing how to drive it

    Do what you want.. but you're not going to get the full potential out of this car by any other means... let alone be consistent.

    I want to thank the moderator TypeC for clearing this issue up and hopefully help any newbies out there to understand how to drop the clutch properly. Like i said, if you're scared... pump the tires to at least 42 ( you could go even 48 psi) until you get over the fear and get the feel for it. If you're launching correctly using this method, it only hurts the tires No clutch smell and no gear shredding!

    Please review this entire forum >>> Slip the clutch, drop the clutch? Whats the differnce

    Now I'm more confused than before, no one seems to agree to dropping or slipping.

    Heck I dont know either but I do know that slipping works awesome for me. I slip it at about 4000 and right or wrong she's flying. But of course this is opionion only, about the way MY car works. Sorry, I'm sure this doesnt help either

    both at the same time. while bouncing throttle from 4000-5500 rpms, and launching on an up bounce.

    Remember the WRX is not a car that was built for dragracing,so if your not experienced at launching correctly,you are asking for trouble. Some guys are just damn good drivers,though.

    the most i ever reved and launched at was 5k while slipping the clutch, you get a small squeak form the tires and then you are off like a bat out of hell, btw technique has a lot to do with this when I started driving i would either bog terribly or smoke the clutch, once really bad, but if you learn the balance you can do 5k launches and not destroy your clutch or shred gears.

    Well in your case, i think it would be easier to dump the clutch
