Automatic launch

What's the best way to launch on a drag race with an automatic?

I've gone to the track a few times and experimented, and found that just mashing the skinny pedal is the same/better than launching at any other RPMs.

Plus, you are not doing your transmission any favors by power braking (aka trans braking).

It's basically not the answer you were looking for. You should probably Google it for your general information, just as I did.

As far as I am concerned, the answer to your question is simply...
1. turn the traction control off
2. Put it in sport mode(assuming you have it)
3 .with left foot on brake, floor gas to 2000 RPM and release the brake. Almost an instantaneous... gas then brake release.

Edit: Like Vig indicated, don't try to push transmission RPM.
