This is my version of launching. Others may chime in but it works for me.

Here you go. My way of launching. Stage up, both lights. Rev to 2500RPM and hold. Yellow, yellow, GO! Trust me. It may sound stupid, but it works. Think about this. From the time you see the first Yellow to the Green, it 0.500 seconds. 1/2 second from the time both of you are staged and the light goes green. Once you are holding at 2500. Watch the light and don't think about anything else. Count it, Yellow, Yellow, GO. Let out clutch slowly, hear your engine, see your foot on the gas, feather the clutch, listen to your tires, if they are spinning, push in clutch enough to stop spinning, repeat as necessary. Now, all that happens within the first 2.0 seconds after the light goes green. After that, you are on your own. Shift when you gotta shift and keep your feet down until you cross the line.

Yo wassup man, I occasionally go to Sac raceway. This past weekend the track was sticky so if conditions are the same you should be able to launch at 4k w/ your MMs. And if you get a good 60'/launch, you should be able to hit low 14s, probably a 14.2 - 14.3. The best I've seen there with CAI/Hondata and drag radials was 14.0. I usually launch at 5.5k there since I have Azenis. I launched at 5k this weekend, and bogged and got the poor 14.2...would've been 13.9 or something, oh wellz.
