When I am starting off the line I turn off the traction control, hold the brakes and rev the engine just enough to keep the tires from breaking loose. In most cases the tires break loose some but it's possible to get a good leap off the line. Try that with the traction control on and the engine practically shuts down while the other guy waves goodbye.
2nd gear launch at about 2300 rpm..careful to not.hit the kick down.....ease into throttle as traction allows.
