    Launch Techniques: READ ME FIRST

    two options, slip the clutch quickly to let the cutch take the stress, or dump it, hope the tires spin and they'll relieve the force. i rarely launch but slipping seems the safest if you ask me. and even then i do it at fairly low RPM's. your choice, this might be the most asked and debated question on here.

    Personally I wouldn't do a whole lot of launching unless your perfectly ok with something breaking.

    I hear you rev it to 8.5k and drop the clutch. Your transmission sings a song of ecstasy.
