if your drivetrain can handle it then you can do it. seen a lot of racers around here launch at that high and some built up the drivetrain some didn't. the one's that didn't blew something up. lol.

my experience with the camaro 3200-3500 was pretty good and not dumping the clutch but quickly and smoothly releasing it. . .but it's so fast that it almost feels like a dump.
