Good Launch

Hey guys...I was just wondering what a good launch RPM is for a 5th gen SH...i know the SH doesnt make a difference, but yea.

Cuz i raced my friend in his Ion Red Line...(knowing that i would lose. Just ****in' around).
And hes a moron and bounced off the limiter 3 times before shifting into 2nd. My only disadvantage, besides the obvious power difference was that i didnt launch very well. Any help is greatly appreciated. We were equal until 2nd when he pegged the limiter and i went by, but buy mid-3rd he ran me back down...Wasnt a smart race, but it was fun.

4k partial slip. Just a wee bit of wheel spin, but not too much, but also make sure you dont bog it.

sweet man...sounds good. Im so used to driving a rear drive V8 sedan. If i launched the Impala SS at 4grand, id burn the rear tires off it. Hah.
But yea...i dont wanna sound TOO much like a newb but what do you mean by partial slip?

Slip the clutch, do not just drop it, or else you will hop and spin yourself to a bad 60'. Like, ease it out while keeping the RPMs up top as good as you can, an aftermarket clutch will help out a lot, it fades a whole lot less when you slip it as I described.

I am used to AWD turbos, that is a whole different ball game, I just sit on my stutter box, take up the drivetrain slack, and dump it. 1.6xx 60's all day on street tires.

That is actually really good advice. I hate the "hops." If I could add to that also, when your launching on the track; you really have to feather the gas pedal as well otherwise the whole traction thing is completely out the window. i.e. don't bog it down as stated before.

Hops eat open differentials...

And turn on your wipers, lol.

A good set of prothane motor mounts, or solid steel ones, agressive springs and struts will also help remedy this.
