This thread reminds me of all the "Stagging" that happened at the street races on street tires lol. I was guilty of it too, though.

I found this which. I use to do It the ebrake way to pre load the car an having the clutch slip a bit which seemed to work. Alot better than just dropping it. But after reading that I'm gonna try n practice doing what it said seeing if its alot better. But i feel like its gonna take alot just to do it right.

whenever i go to the track i usually avoid the burn box. usually pre-load to 2000 rpm and when i launch i try to keep traction the best i can to the top of 1st, maybe getting a slight chrip right before the shift. then power down through the end. but im working with 320 tq and automatic, so it may be a bit different for you.

best way to do it, go to the track and practice on a test&tune night.
