well i think everyone knows that AWD will take FWD car from the launch anyday if its launched properly. Thats the main advantage of AWD cars is the launch but after that it dies down unless you have a lot of mods for topend. The AWD system becomes a burden at high speed. And to answer your question, I wasn't on drag radials or slicks, I don't claim I can beat all WRX out there but I can put up a good fight with one that isn't highly modified.slowjetta1.8T said:Well unless the celica was on drag radials or slicks that wrx owner cant launch. Like awd owns a fwd car out the hole.
on stock tires and stock suspension, i launched at 4500-5000 dumping the clutch. However now that I got a different set of tires (yokohama es100) and kyb shocks with skunk2 coilover, i have to re-learn my launch technique. It appears launching the same way as before isn't the same. I never slip the clutch, I always have dump it on every single launch I do. I have about 76k on my car and my clutch is still going strong but i'm hoping it will hold until i get my header in and go to the track.exotic performance said:mirconrice how do you launch your car?
