yeah, 2.2 is about the best you are probably going to do on street tires, you may break into 2.1s if the track is crazy sticky. Right now I just feather the clutch a bit only really revving to 1000-1500 rpm and giving it some extra gas just as the light turns

I changed my oil which was bit about 500 miles overdue and I really noticed differences when launching. I noticed an extra hop or jump as the brake is released. Think it will give me an edge over my friend who doesn't know bout launching. He beat me before in his V-8 vortec tahoe by very little, but it was my very first time racing I think i'll take him out now.

Are you kidding me? 2:

These people are telling you what to do based on experience, yet you continue to doubt them.

"Brake Torquing" is the preferred method of launching with a Automatic Stang. Torquing the car at 2000rpm will not spin the tires if you have your foot on the brake. Now don't get me wrong, p*ssy footing the brake why doing this won't be smart; make sure you have your left foot firmly over the brake and your right foot steady on the gas. Doing anything else (dropping the car into drive from neutral) will have a negative effect on your car, which obviously no one wants.

I've used this method time and time again and have never spun my wheels. Also, make sure you have Traction Control turned off when you launch, otherwise it'll be pointless.

Hope this helps you. Just make sure you're careful in the time after you launch
