How To Launch A Manual Transmission Car - Detailed Process For more videos like this, click here - Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - How do I launch a manual transmission? The process of launching a manual transmission is straight forward, but there are a few variables you need to adjust for optimizing your speed. 1. Press the clutch in. 2. Apply throttle, holding the RPM at a desired speed. 3. Release the clutch. 4. When the clutch starts to grab, apply more throttle and modulate as necessary to control wheel spin. The trickiest part will be determining what RPM you should start the launch with, and it will likely take a few tries to get it just right. Too much throttle and the tires will likely spin. Not enough throttle and the acceleration will be slow in comparison. It's also important to smoothly, but fairly quickly, release the clutch. Too slow and you can burn up the clutch, too fast and you could cause drivetrain damage if the tires do not slip. This video will feature 0-60 launches of several different cars, including the VW Golf R, Ford Mustang GT, Chevy Camaro SS, Subaru WRX, Mazda MX-5, and Subaru BRZ. Times will be posted for comparison with Motor Trend and Car And Driver. And don't forget to check out my other pages below!

How To: Drag Racing for Beginners
Some people made some good points in the comments, so here are a few more tips: Jeff Wilson - Don't do a burnout until the track staff indicates to do so. Darren Betker - What is the average cost per run? A: In my experience it can be as little as $10/15 on a regular test and tune night, $35 on a day, or more if you choose to participate in a track rental. It really varies and your best bet would be to look it up before you go. Today, we get down to the basics of drag racing if you're new to the sport.
