I took my fd to the track on friday, it was cold out.

I wouldn't spin my tires in the box,

but launching off was extremely difficult for me,
at low rpms 2ish, it' was just slow take off

and anything past 3, just seem to have really bad wheel hope, and resulting in bad times. i was running high 15s lol, when the car runs 13.5 stock, so i'm wondering your guys techniques for turbo cars?

I realize its not really a drag racing car, and will take it to the autocross in the future, but i'd still like to know how to launch properly w/o hurting everything.
