    Getting off the line in 2010 WRX

    What's the best way to start off the line in a 2010 WRX? I seem to get a bit of lag in first gear.

    About 1500 miles. This is my first hydraulic clutch in a Subaru. I think it is just going to take some getting used to.

    i feel like the friction point on this clutch is quite high thats why i have a problem with it sometimes, it took me about a month to really get a good feel for it

    any of the wrx/sti's have an akward friction point. It takes some time.

    I agree. I want to spool the revs up just before I hit the clutch point. I have plenty of time to get used to the clutch, I just need to be more patient.

    I just had a chance to race a 2007 Mustang Cobra at a light. I was concerned about the clutch point, but I guess my reflexes took over. I think I got the rpms up to 3000-4000 just as I hit the clutch point. It was very fluid and the car responded. I got a nice bit of tire squeal and then the car just took off.
    Sometimes we have a tendency to over analyze these things, but when the time comes it's good to just let our reflexes take over. I have driven for several of my jobs delivering pizza, kegs, etc. I also just finished putting 155,000 miles on my last Impreza. There is no substitute for experience. My next adventure will involve some practice on a local track.

    BTW, the Mustang lost badly.
