ok so basic launch...it takes some practice to get the transfer down...

-left foot brake right foot gas
-load the torque converter to about 1500 rpms (maybe have to give more or less rpms depending on surface)
-don't let the tire spin
-turn off traction control and o/d (if you have TC)
-as you let off brake give a bit more gas...don't slam it to the floor or you'll spin
-enjoy your launch

that's the best way i've found to do it on the track..depending on prep it could need some changes
