You do not need to hit the kick down switch again after the flag, nor do you have to wait till the RPMs drop that far before releasing the brake

As soon as you lift off the kick down switch you can release the brake immediately, the car wont move anywhere (while the flag is displayed) until you press on the gas peddle (no need to mash it back down). Re-appplication of the gas peddle is to modulate how much power you want to the wheel to reduce wheel spin
Yea the first video I messed up trying to hold the camera and launch at the same time. I did not know that the car wouldn't move while the flag was up even if the brake was not held down the whole time.

Back to practicing... Will report back with results and vid. Thanks for the tip, I definitely will agree I am being to aggressive with the pedals causing me to keep spinning and loosing time
