I get a few half chirps and I'm off. I have a lot of practice in this car lol.
Wow that is a fantastic launch with crappy Nitto Invos. I had them on my n54 335i 6AT and they were terrible, even with the Wavetrak LSD. Upgraded to Michelin Pilot Super Sports and it completely transformed the car, particularly during the off-the-line launch. I bet you can improve on your launch even more with better tires.
