I'll assume you're at the drag strip, so the first thing you need to do is turn Advancetrac completely off. Just turning off traction control isn't enough, and Sport Mode is even worse.

Others may be able to chime in on tips for launching the auto specifically, but I'm sure this has been discussed many times so you might want to search this site, other sites, and google for some quick answers with varying viewpoints.

Put in neutral, bounce it off the rev limiter, and slam into drive. Find the weak link in the drivetrain, replace, and keep repeating

That's a good way to eff up your transmission
NEVER rev drop.
Never!!!!!!!
Foot brake till 2k rpm (make sure to is off)
And when the light turns green foot off brake and punch it
