Just wondering what the best way to get a good start is in an auto tC... I'm gonna take it to the track in a few weeks. I've been trying different ways to get it to go without spinning, trying it out on some of the back roads. Flooring it right from the start doesn't work well, the best way i found was to hold the brake rev it up to 2k and let go, but is that really bad for the car or is it ok to do it once in a while like when i take it to the track? Besides spending $ on new tires what's the best way to get a decent start?

Why did you get an automatic if you want to race your car?


Racing = Driving
Driving = 5 Speed
5 Speed = Fun

Hold the brake, step on the gas and rev to about 2k. Just don't do it for more than a few seconds at a time, it seriously overheats your transmission fluid.

^^or a turbo, they run really well on automagics, but you may have to increase line pressure to prevent slippage, but that shouldn't be hard

cause thats what I am doing...yeah!
