    I would have no problem launching your car. On gravel I'd select around 4K, keeping my foot on the clutch just in case I bog so that I can "save" the launch if need be. On tarmac I'd select maybe 4.5K or so, and opt for a very aggressive slip of the clutch while making sure I am just below the point where a chirp would be clearly audible.

    On the other hand, I would never launch my car! 'Nuff said I suppose, eh?

    I'm sure there are plenty of vids on Youtube and such of those who have tried and failed. Don't be one who failed. Watch, or ride, with someone in thier car if you want to see what it's like. IMO obviously.

    tryin to help you out, if you're racing, then probably yes.
    launching is really hard on your car. in fact with any car, i launched my civic so many times... a really strong clutch is imporant

    A really strong clutch on an AWD car is a quick way to break something. It may be good for a Civic, but not a WRX
