Smart man. Although plastidip is said to work even better, might try that next time.

Re: Rpm launch

LOL ive got the manual, proudly made in china, so i usually launch at 8500. Ill push to 9k once i break my car in.

Seriously though does anybody have an answer? Like were just being pricks now. Its hilarious though.

Im no drag racer but isnt half the fun of it figuring out that stuff for yourself? The real question is should stability control be turned off?

There are several variables that will affect the answer to this question.

Are you using the stock wheels and tires or slicks?

Are you a manual trans or auto?

Do you have a stock suspension?

If you are using stock wheels and tires your RPM's will need to be much lower to avoid wheel spin. You may find that for the track that day lowering your rear tire pressure down to 28 will help with launching. I would not suggest anything above 2700 rpm.

If you are using slicks you can go much higher and have seen guys launching in the 4500-5000 range. This of course is paired with shocks and springs designed for the track.

If you are in a 100% bone stock auto your best bet is to floor it from just a hair above idle...

If you are in a bone stock manual rev it up to 1700 and quickly feather it in to avoid any wheel spin.


****I am not an expert in these things, I drive a modified 3.7 with a mt82 trans. Your results may vary as well as the opinions you gather here. The best best is to try in 500 rpm increments until you find what works best for you and your set up.****

I can attest that this worked very well for me on the track.

Rpm launch

For my automatic with just a 93R Bama tune, I found that pedal to the metal from idle was the same if not better than any other RPMs I tried launching at.

Plus us auto guys aren't doing our transmissions any favors by power braking.

Tried the same thing: Came off idle, staged at 1500, 1750, 2000 with no change in 60' or ET. I imagine if i really tried to stand on it and come out at 2500 or so it might have helped, but like someone said > The trans probably wont like that.

If you have a turbo whistle, there's no need to rev.

This is true! I've raced many cars on the street and they all do that rev launching and I just sit quietly waiting for the light. Then when the lights green I floor it. Ive tried both ways a little over idle might be okay but anything over with stock tires I just loose traction.. Depends on your setup.
