There seems to be a lot of debate on how and at what RPMs to best launch the car in a straight drag race. I've done some racing with friends, but few of them were very good drivers so I wouldn't even count it. I do, however, want to take my car to the track this weekend, and wanted to get a detailed explanation on how to get best times. I have a bone-stock FBP FG2, and would like to break into the 14s without wasting too many turns (the line at our Joliet track gets LOOOOOOONG). The consensus seems to be to turn VSA off, that seems logical. What's a good RPM at which to take off? 4k? 5k? Bring it up to that, and then just drop the clutch? With VSA off doesn't that just add up to a new set of tires and a terrible rubber burn without lateral motion? Does Power Shifting really take off time, or just kill the tranny? Should I take it almost up to the engine-kill point, or shift around the redline? What's the preferred tire pressure on the front and the rear with the all-season tires? I am more than happy to admit that I am a track n00b, but if someone could give me a DETAILED guide as to how to get a good time, I would really appreciate it. I see FA5s getting 14.7s stock, I'd like to get around there with the all-season tires.
