Going to the track this Friday! - Another first timer

Last time I was at a track was in NY with my n/a motor Civic Si lol

I have no torque management on my car (tuned out) and some other minor ECU tweaks my friend did with HP tuners. Also I just got my CAI installed a week or so ago.

Looking for any advice on launching specifically. I have a M6 as well since that obviously matters.

My suggestions...

keep the tires no lower than 32psi, Launch between 2000-2500 rpm, when releasing the clutch- you want to feather it just a little bit. Don't dump the clutch or release it too quickly. and dont get upset at your times. It will take a lot of practice. Especially being your last car at the track was a FWD underpowered 4cyl.
