I launch between 3800-4k rpm... i have bfg g-forces and average a 2.3 60ft. Some wheel spin but not enough to really slow me down. Also no wheel hop.
ding! ding! ding! we have a winner. this is how you keep your drivetrain in tact. different cars will have a different rpm but anything above 3500 is just asking for trouble multiply that by 10 with high power motors. i hold my 300 at 29-3100 right as the clutch is about to engage i drop it down to 27-2800 right as the clutch catches the tires chirp i floor it and it fucking goes. the only reason i hold it a little above is because it feels more natural to me like when you lift off a bit to shift.2700 and feather the clutch, it grabs with no spin or hop, then it catches around 3500-4000 and i can floor it and pulls up without dropping rpms, once i hit vtec i get ready to bang 2nd
It all happens so fast i cant really describe it.
All i know is the key is to feather the clutch, regardless of rpms, if your on street tires. when i firts got my car i dropped it pretty hard, but with a feather it doesnt hop or spin
true but not usually with a street car. i have beaten some cars that should have killed me because they redlined it and dumped the clutch and sat at the line spinning. if you have a built drag car you should be able to launch at higher rpms without breaking shit. with a fwd you really shouldn't need high rpms to launch. i break traction at 3000 in my stock 3rd gen and can spin to third gear. again the rpms will change depending on your setup.^ but sometimes thats not the ideal launching rpm for maximum acceleration/speed.
