No matter what question you ask in the v6 section, there is always some d bag GT owner who says "get a v8" and offers no help whatsoever.

Honestly to get better traction you need to learn where your car starts to spin it's tires. Gears will help acceleration and obviously upgrading to stickier tires will definitely improve your launch. I Normally stage around 3k and let the clutch out. But I also don't have performance tires

That's just one of those things you will have to experiment with and get the feel of the car. For me when I had a stick shift I would start normal maybe just a few extra rpms and once the clutch was engaged I would floor the gas pedal. I know it may sound off the wall But once you get the hang of it and the timing is right you will get a fast smooth launch. I hope this helps you some.

To help on you're launch a good set of tires will help as well as lowering you're car and a set of arms

Just go out to a parking lot and give it a few tries. It didn't take me long to find out where to launch at. You could even just try a quick launch from stop light to stop light. If you don't start speeding and don't squeal tires. No ticket. And you can practice every day to work n back lol
