How to do a Quick Launch with a manual Car

In a fwd car, how would you do a quick launch with a stick.

In a rwd, how would you do a quick launch with a stick.

In a awd, howwould you do a quick launch with a stick.

I dont want to do burnouts! just quick.

*sigh* Why do you even use the username 'CAREXPERT'? You don't even know what a clutch is. Tell me this, in a manual car, there are three pedals (surely you must have noticed that), there's clutch, brake, gas in order of left to right. The clutch is a metal plate from the engine that rubs against another metal plate to move the driveshaft, hence to move the wheels. You put in the clutch (moves plates apart) to shift gears or go to neutral. You drop the clutch by removing your foot from the clutch pedal extremely quick. A drop clutch start is where you rev the engine, then drop the clutch to get the wheels movng quickly. (You need to do drop clutch starts on non-torque engines). It's the difficulty of dropping it at the right RPMs to not spin the tires and get the perfect traction, while not destroying your driveshaft and clutch and transmission.

Take driver's ed before posting any more questions, that's an order.

A drop clutch start is where you rev the engine, then drop the clutch to get the wheels movng quickly. (should there not be something about finding the biting point first?) (You need to do drop clutch starts on non-torque engines ). (hmm...non-torque engines? You'll have to do ALOT more than just drop the clutch if you engine produces NO torque.. ) It's the difficulty of dropping it at the right RPMs to not spin the tires and get the perfect traction, while not destroying your driveshaft and clutch and transmission.

Good job your not called carEXPERT either...

Seems all i do is pick up on peoples faults here, and thats not really a valid contribution IMHO...


Note: I would like to apply for the job of Hobo Jr if there is an opening..

Many thanks in advance.

I don't know all the exact physics of clutches, but my explanation was a basic overview. Any more information would have made carexpert's head explode.

Friction plate. Liek I said, mine was a basic overview, and that's basically what a clutch is, two plates rubbing against each other.

Depress is a better word, thanks for the tip.

Biting pont. Considered explaining it, but like I said, any more info would make carexpert run screaming into the night clutching his head. What is the traction point on a civic anyway? 5000 RPMs?

By non-torque engines, I meant low torque engines, like the civic. A auto civic isn't very fast on the launch as compared to a stick civic.

Never said I was.

It's important to pick up on people's mistakes, to recognize and correct them in your own head, unless people start to take the false info as true, then you publicly state the fallacies.

Like I said, just an overview.
