View Full Version : best way to launch?

I was wondering if anybody had ideas on the best way to launch from a stop with out a lot of wheel spin or long turbo lag? I'm sure there are different theories and would love to hear them. Also, how do you guys do burn outs? My daytona had some bald tires and i would love to finish them off. LOL Thanks for the input.

You'll never get a straight or correct sure-fire answer. The track surface, tire compound, weight distribution, and vehicle all make a difference. There is no correct answer for you. Practice.

However burnouts do look cool but also potentially damages drivetrain parts. Although a little lubricant on the tires will help reduce possible damage to your car. Get it on video.

This was me (cameraman) and my buddy finishing off the KDW's 2 years ago. Transmission oil was used on the tires. The tires were so bad, I'm surprised we got back to the shop to change them.

+1 to that for launching on the track... except the riding the clutch part may not work out if you have a stock or puck clutch.

for a street launch... just gotta get some decent tires and practice.
