Re: HOW TO LAUNCH A S60 R OFF THE LINE PROPERLY (SA-R)

Okay here is my take.<p>1. The R drive train is delicate in comparison and does have some weak components, angle gear, spline sleeve, etc<p>2. If you are going to do a (controlled) launch you will want DSTC reduced or go the full 5 press method and switch to antiskid off!<p>3. There is no need to launch above 2500 RPMs. Between 2k & 2.5k should be sufficient, find the RPM in that range that you are comfortable with. A controlled clutch release is vital to drive train longevity.<p>4. The way the R was designed was more a track / auto cross car. Not an all out drag strip racer.<p>Hope you take this advice as from personal experiance and forum / web research I would take this as text book info... Good Luck <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

like any AWD car, even a damn murcielago (spelling way off)...<p>Get it in gear as fast as possible. then floor it.

Rev up to around 4 thousand RPMs and dump the clutch and be on your way.... Nevermind that's an STI; I agree with Needsdecaf dont!

Congrats to those of you who have been able to do it. The one and only time I ever dragged my car, it was 3 or 4 passes, and I could not get below a 2.2 60'. I don't have what it takes to launch <b>this</b> car, lol.<p>But after seeing what happened to my collar spline, I will never launch it again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (phuz)

DSTC off (5 click method)<br>Turbo blip around 2k RPMs to get the turbo spooling<br>Time it so that when you begin to engage the clutch it is while you're on the gas (during the blip)<br>Ride clutch for a sec until it engages, then punch it<p><br>If you want to launch harder, just up the RPMs during the blips - though not recommended...

Re: (GiRaff3)

Give it a few tries and figure out how much throttle and clutch you need to launch it properly without bogging down.<p>Too little throttle with too much clutch and you'll bog.<p>Too much throttle with too much clutch slip...oooh you'll know it (and smell it)<p>Once you get use to it, it's really not that hard on the clutch. I'm down to 2.0 sec 60' times and 8.70 1/8 miles. Will be on the 1/4 next week Wednesday at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, WI. Rumor has it that it's only in the 60's up there, so it should make for some good passes!
