I find the best way to get a good launch is take ur car to a empty road with a passanger and make a few 0-60 runs with a stop watch. Experiment with different rpms and see what works best with your tires and what not.
I´ve tried slipping the clutch, dropping it, etc etc..
I´ve found the best way is to get at right around 3K rpms, then "softly" drop the clutch. This isn´t like slowly let off of it, this is more like letting it out, but a controlled letting it out. Then as soon as you have the clutch all the way out, floor it all out.
Takes only a split second to do, so it´s not some exceedingly slow and meditated thing.
If you do it correctly, you´ll get a small squeak and squeak from your tires through the full range of 1st gear, but no spinning, and then if you´ve got a quick shift into second, you should also chirp the tires when you hit second gear. I´ll see if I can get a camera borrowed from a friend tommorrow and I´ll video tape me doing it.

best launch is to redline it and slowly let the clutch out so your not roasting the tires but they are still loosing little bits of traction, like when i did that donut in the church parking lot today, lol. It's a bitch on your clutch though. Just drive your car normal dude and give er her witht he accelerator, your either gonna win or not gonna win, no point in beating the **** out of your car for no reason, especially with the price to get a clutch installed now adays.
