    The only way you can do a soft launch and not bog it is to slip it, if you dump/drop the clutch and you don't have the rpms up high the car is going to bog for sure, the only way to dump the clutch and get a good launch is to rev it up to 5k or higher and drop it and you will get slight wheel spin and take off. If you rev it up to 4k or lower you may not get wheel spin when you dump it and you will bog down and thats the worst thing you can do for the trans. You can always slip/dump it, that is what most people do and it seems pretty effective, you let the clutch out at a normal rate until you feel it catching and then you dump it at the same time you mash the gas, but again make sure you are reved up to 4k or higher doing that, otherwise you will bog. If you want to do a soft launch you have to slip it or you will bog.
