New members can only post in this sub forum, until you get to a certain post count.

As far as launching, that is subject-able to the driver but a good rule of thumb is max t/q RPM.

I have the Mazdaspeed LWF and use 3K for a launch point. I provides just a small amount of wheel spin without bauging the motor down too much.

Oh ok.. thanks for the info so basically your saying launch at 5500? When i try to launch at 5k it spins like crazy i was actually thinking of launching at 2-2.5k..might just be a trial and error type of thing though idk

anywhere from idle with no throttle input all the way to redline depending on what you're trying to achieve and skill level

the question is too undefined to answer accurately
