launching at redline

I use to slip the clutch when launching but it fried my clutch to much, now i launch at redline dumping the clutch, all 4 tires spin and i'm of the line like a rocket sometimes the car fishtails- which feels sweet. My 0-60's are 1.70-180. anyone else experiencing this. I know that once my wheels are spinning i'm not damaging the gearbox.

Mods so far: tbe, intake slincer removal, mbc- set at 17-18 psi

nice 60 fts time but have u been saving up some money ### i think ## just a couple more hard launches from a new tranny. i would rather replace a clutch than a tranny that's why i slip the clutch when i launch. tire spin does take some of the load of the tranny but i would refrain from dumping the clutch.

redline dumping.... maybe once or twice n ## lucky do it again n ## an idiot...straight up
its betta to ease off the clutch smoothly n slowly but not to slow this isnt good for the car but hell, its way betta than what your doing now...

....2000 Subaru WRX....

Geez, maybe the US wrx's have softer gearboxes than the JDM's, and obviously by your comments they do. a couple guys here with jdm wrx's like mine do the same thing week after week with no problem. I was the only one frying my clutch at the line. Anyway, thanks to the guys who replied respectfully. And i am saving up for dog gears for 1st,2nd and 3rd. Then I should be bulletproof, somewhat

jdm yo!

what is the final decision on that i have heard speculation that the jdm box is better but never seen any facts.

i got so sick of explaining mbc problems that i stopped trying. infact my buddy running a 20g at 350 whp on his built STI swap 03 wrx track car runs a hallman mbc. :/ i guess if you do it right theres nothing wrong but most dont do it right.

02 rex is gone.
I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.

Would you mind, for the slow and patient.
What problems and what does mbc have to do with launching?

BJJ for the win!
