Hi, I have a 2015 GT with a manual(non performance pack) with the 3.55 gears and can't figure out how to launch this car. My best time according to the in car computer is 5.7 seconds with TC off. I have a hard time launching without either roasting the tires or bogging the engine. The best I've found is to launch at about 2700RPM and dump the clutch. Then the shift into second is brutal, I can't seem to do it quickly without tons of drivetrain lash and general horribleness.
Does anybody have any tips? I should be able to get into 4.7 territory shouldn't I?
This is not my first manual car, but I'm certainly not the best at it either. I can cruise around town completely smoothly, but I don't have a tons of practice with performance based gear shifts.
