2014 5.0 A6 launch

Hey for those who drag race. What is the best way to launch the automatic and do you use manual select?

On street tires just keep in the D setting and launch off idle or about 1200 rpms.

drive around the water box to prevent your front tires from leaving a trail of water,I leave at 1000 rpm and slam it when the 3rd yellow light come on, I put nitto"s all around and it helped traction, 12.84 @ 109, stock no mods.

Stock converter I found it best leaving off idle. With my 4C I launch it at 3600 or so before it pushes through the brakes.

Must be nice to have the circle D converter. I try and get my auto has high as the RPM will allow before it pushes threw the brakes and then slame it down. Right now im on stock tires so i leave trac control ON because if not it spins all of first then shifts to 3rd as a saftey i think.

That's exactly what happens if traction is an issue.
