take it to peak torque, when you drop the cluitch it will drop in revs but will still be quite close to peak torque so it will pick up quickley

I used to hold mine around 3500rpm, the slide the clutch to about 5k to get the power down (the tricks getting off the clutch without spinning, just takes a bit of practice).

My clutch is fine still after 3 years.

Hold the revs at 3500rpm, clutch down, in gear, bring the clutch up to the biting point, then when u wanna go, slowly bring your foot off the clutch and foot down on the accelerator (not full throttle) and let the clutch side (keep letting the clutch out and getting the power down) until you think you got enuff speed to stop the wheelspin and then put ur foot down (should b just about there by then anyway).

Then ur ready to let the revs rise n chuck it in 2nd.

Wot bout in a 1.2 8v with 16"s??

*Rev to 4.5k
*Foot straight off clutch
*Done (tick tick tick)
*After 13 secs ur at 60 lol

No wheelspin i can do most cars away from the lights due to traction, but then after bout 5 secs there gone Bring on the 1.4 16v Nitrous
