Left foot on the brake. Right foot on the gas. Bring the rpm's up to your desired launch rpm's. On the last yellow light release the left foot and smash the right foot down at the same time.

Got it - guess we just called that loading. Ie torque loading the driveline. It makes snese. My trip to the track with bad tires I tried flashing at 1100 - no traction.

My issue, even with new Rosso 275/45, the tires spin and I loose time. Granted I've only driven the new tires on the sreet not the track. How do you guys control the spin when flashing? I have the TC off as I understand that pulls timing when it kicks in.

I am leaving with traction control ON. I still have a slight wheel spin as the nannies work to control spin. However, I will be checking how to leave now with the drag radials.
