Icon6 What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

On the street I can manage to drop the clutch really quickly around 1500rpm and get a good launch. On the track it's impossible to launch like that and I either get crazy wheel hop or sit there and spin my tires for 2 seconds before I even get going. Last night I tried something new a friend suggested. Rev to 4000 rpm and slowly let out the clutch. Ever since I started driving I've always dumped the clutch, so I could not perfect letting it out slowly in the few runs I had left. I could feel a big difference though. I managed a 15.7 but I could feel that there was defiantly room for improvement and that I could get a better time. I was just curious, what's everyone's launch technique at the 1/4 track?

(Mods please move to the track forum, sorry I didn't see it in time)

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

Unfortunately slicks were recently banned at our track. I like running without them anyway.

I have yet to actually track the car, but I usually go for 4000-4200 and feather out.

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

i start by putting on some old disco funk when im about to race specialy if this is the recing event out here "cruzing montgomery" it has to be something funky like (the s.o.s. band) -take your time ((do it right)) this is all the craze out here by then the mofo is distracted as i am blantently blasting the song as loud as possible.
it then proceeds to igniting the splif in my mouth and starting up my thc injection system.
by that time everything is running at its peak and im ready.
ill dump the clutch in gradualy (quickly) but as not to pop it once i feel the veichle start to move ill dip in the clutch one more time and crack the throttle wide open again and leave it there while positioning to slam it into 2nd as fast as possible.
the question is if your balls are big enough to move from one gear to another without letting of the throttle.....

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

if you dump the clutch your gonna wheel hop all over... feather the clutch and launch anywhere from 3800-4500rpms.... or where your vtec pops first gear launch in vtec BWA and if you a 15.7 with a h22a. im sorry thats horrible in a 4g... should be atleast lower 15s....

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

If I dump the clutch I spin and hop like crazy. I feather it out near VTAK!

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

I know my current time can be improved, that's why I started this thread! I'll just have to practice feathering. It's something new to me. I guess I've always been afraid of braking something. I can't wait to hit the track again. Wont letting out the clutch at such high rpms prematurely wear out my clutch? I only have a stock clutch. : /

Maybe someone should explain "feathering" the clutch to him. Yeah..., to him, because I totally understand what it means.

he might mean a flat shifter which enables you to hold down the gas and let the rpms bounce of the rev limiter when launching. thats my guees.

Feathering the clutch is just depressing the clutch just a bit and you release a little bit at a time. It takes some time and skill to get down perfectly, but you'll start learning your car. Just rev up to 3500 and slowly let off the clutch. If it starts getting jumpy, then you push down a bit more. Its just really on and off until you find the correct point in RPM's to launch at and what will stop you from spinning tires. Once it catches, you just hop on the gas. Hard.

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

The automatic thing is sort of like a beefed up torque converter. It allows the driver to launch a much higher rpms with little to no slip. That's why almost all drag cars are auto. Commonly referred to as a "high stall torque converter" That combined with a transbrake make fir insane launches.

Hope that helped

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

take your redline rpm and cut it in half, thats where you wanna be launching at.

i have n h23 and i redline at 6200, so i launch at 3100, pretty simple right?

BUT...

you need to learn the launch control, and this takes alot of practice.

so lets use my h23 as an example

i rev to 3100, rev and hold.
when the light hits, DO NOT DUMP THE CLUTCH AND SMASH, this is where your bunny hopping nightmare begins, instead, press the gas just a little bit more and now dump the clutch BUT try to MAINTAIN that 3100 RPM. (if it drops below the 3100 the car will bog, if you go past 4k you will just be spinning tires LOL)
you will feel the wheel spin just a bit and it will just pull you (youre grabbing now)...
....you can now floor it, but make sure when you upshift, do it about 500rpms before your redline (because itll jump when you press on the clutch)

i ran a 15.1@91mph in my 4th gen h23 pwrd with only i-h-e. not bad for a NON VTEC right?

Re: What's everyones 1/4 mile launching technique?

i push the gas pedal to the floor once the tree lights up saying we are staged. Hold it there until the yellow light displays. Then drop the clutch and focus on going straight.
