Lunching my 2012 v6 m6.
 
Guys I've been to the track for the first time with my camaro an in my life and I feel like i couldn't lunch t very well. My best time was 14.8 which is caused partial by the 95 Fahrenheit temperature. My question is what are good lunching revs and how do i lunch the car so that it is the most beneficial. BTW i find the amount of room in the clutch pedal before it engages very annoying.

Try rolling out the clutch instead of dumping or letting it spring back ultra-fast. Maybe start at 2500 and work your way up a bit to see what works best.

In other words, let the quick out more quickly than a standard easy take off but don't drop it. Make sense? Practice is the key.

What were your 60 ft times? I cut some 1.9s by launching around 3000 when the light goes green bury the throtlle and slowly let out the clutch as you finish burrying the throttle. Manage the engine speed with clutch slip. Don't make to many pass's like this back to back maybe three tops. After 6 or 7 my clutch fluid got hot and pedel stuck 3/4 released. I could smell clutch for the next two weeks. Our v-6 clutchs are pretty weak. We don't have the torque to just side step the clutch and get that 3900lb car moving like the v-8 guys.

After some practic I am pretty sure I can cut a sub 2 second 60' on the street with out slipping a tire. With what I said above.

You're going to have to play with it. The SS guys are giving you info off their experience and they have a lot more torque than we do, so our cars react different. My car, even though it's also an LS, will be different due to my mods and my drag radials. Track prep will also be different and play a roll.
Each time I've gone it'll be a little different. The way Macrackie says he does it has worked but I've also dumped and jabbed the throttle, depending on the track. Even with the drag radials, it still spins the tires a little but it keeps the rpm's up.
