where you protuned? do you have a dyno plot? that way we can determine how/where the torque is.
you can use this vid for reference perhaps

That was a great vid :)

Yeah, between 3-4K is about right. Above 4K and I get way too much wheel spin. It's more fun, but not as fast. Closer to 3K and I tend to bog out a bit. I usually keep mine near 4k for a launch.

6500 sounds about right.... ;D Just messing. launching depends on clutch as well, agree'd though 3-4 is good!

How fast are you letting out the clutch between 3&4?

In my stock 09 my best launches are when I slip the clutch at 3500, then as it's about to bog put the clutch back in slightly, at this point the car is rolling. Then I rev to 4200 while slipping the clutch less and less, the go WOT right before the clutch catches 100%. If done right it's super smooth, feels like a jet, and does limited wear to the clutch and drivetrain for such an aggressive launch. I'd call it a 2 stage launch.

I'll probably need a new clutch at 20k. :-\

4500-4750 with a little slip, do it right and you'll spin a little around 4k, hook, and go without bogging.

i used to launch down around 4k with LC, but, following the advice of a friend, turned the LC up to 5k, and my launch times improved greatly. I do have 225 star specs so wheel spin isn't a problem.

all you guys that are saying where you launch what 60 foots are you getting? bc at the track ive found the sweet spot is 5k to 5.5k and will net you 1.6x 60 foots.

Maybe I'm a ratard but if I do a slight slip launch at 4k my clutch never catches completely and can roast clutch all the way to redline if I keep the throttle down (which I don't). Anything around 3k and it's bogstown. I'm gonna go out and practice. :-[
