well, some people launch that way, 2500 - 3000 rpms and drop the clutch, but in my experience, ive never gotten a great start on my GST that way, ~ i think the best way..is to rev the engine a lil...put the clutch to the friction point as u give the accelerater a nice rev,,, might burn the clutch a lil if not done properly, but with a lil practice, you'll get nice smooth starts with minimum skid put lots of power

My friend has a 97 GST, and he bought a dual stage electronic boost controller, with a button on the steering wheel. He found he was getting better 60 foot times by burning out of the hole at high boost, and the low boost was pretty much useless. Don't expect to know what you are doing the first time you hit the track. I could give you a two hour lesson on launching, and you would forget every word as you were lining up. There is just too much other stuff to think about. Get the basic track experience, and as that becomes second nature, you can concentrate on your launch.
