LiQuanXi08 just put it into 1st gear on 8thcivic
First time at the track

So i just had my first time at the track. and i have a few questions

First off I have a 2008 Honda EX A/T (gotta work w/ what you got)
I have a GReedy exhaust system w/ a K&N intake and i am expecting my headers to come in this week along w/ my FlashPro

Is there any advice on how to have a good start off the line w/ an automatic?
From what i have read it seems to be split b/c some say to rev to the optimal rpm range and then dump it in2 drive but its said that is really bad on the tranny.

I also heard of the breaking technique and you hold on your break and gas at the same time but the something about the torque converter wont let go past a certain rpm while you have your brakes a little confused and then there is the deal w/ the transbrake....any advice would be greatly appreciated
