    Arrow HELP: tips on a good start off the line

    I am looking for some good tips for a good start off the line so i do not make an ass out of myself...i am also looking for some other good driving tips...i know that there is a way to really sling shot arond the corners using the cluch but i am kinda worried about this and some other fast starts off the line and wearing down the clutch. when at about 3 grand should you really let off the clutch or let it off kinda fast but evenly to get a good start...sorry about sounding soo stupid but this is my first standard car and none of my friends drive standard or are really interested in this kinda stuff....

    well like i said in previous notes, i'm no race car driver, but from what i been doin. to really get a handle on the starts... rev up to about 4.5-5k rpms.. keep it up around there, and then when you're droppin the clutch just floor it on the gas. ok the technique i use is to drop the clutch is to let it go fast, but not a straight DROP! don't worry, use your instincts, that's what i do. right when you hear your wheels chirp, you should already be off the clutch and zooming in 1st. redline every gear, no granny shifting or i get my gramma to come do that for ya. and i still don't know how to double clutch (still think it's a F&F thing) somebody else wanna take it away on drifting the wrx? i know the rally drivers drift using the handbrake (locking the rear tires is easier to slide then rotating) but on concrete, i don't have a clue.

    --dr, plat, 99gt.. did i do ok? heheh, RaCinWRX

    Nice! Yes of course you did ok hehe.

    The double clutch in the F&F i have no IDEA what they are talking about during THAT PART of the movie..

    For double clutching... we have discussed it a few times already.. It takes some getting use to, but is very beneficial in downshifting your car.
