heh, my wife can catch me by the smell of my poor clutch... She is all like... hey I told you no street racing and you come home with a smokey clutch...
I have gotten better at not sacrificing my clutch to save my tranny, but seriously a clutch is MUCH cheaper than a transmission, so I would say if you have to pick one, treat your clutch worse.
but don't listen to me, my 0-60 foot time is still 2.2s (I am too careful me-thinks)
I think when I get a new dogbox (we are talking years from now) I would love to take my WRX to the track and launch the hell out of it and see just how easy it is to turn gears into confetti.
next test and tune night I plan on launching from 2000 RPM and see what I can do, I think it may actually be better since I can boost a lot sooner.
has anyone tried using the emergency brake and letting boost build with the clutch mostly up? I think that would be easy on transmission, but hard on the clutch and e-brake, not something to do every day, but when that modded mustang gt keeps beating you, maybe it is time to pull out the big guns.
