Weird hooking problems...

I just got my car today, and I cant seem to get a good 0-60 run because Im getting wheel-slip, but I don't hear it? My windows are down and radio off and I can feel the wheels slipping and I see the marks afterwards but its not making a sound. Am I deaf?

No, it's just quiet. These pirellis are ninja tires. They whisper at the pain when mere mortal tires would be screaming bloody murder

okay,i tried my launch control this weekend and i thought i was doing something wrong,i did just as owners man. states..pedal to floor and let off clutch,but,when i let off the clutch,it did'nt move off the floor and i could smell the clutch,rpm's hit about 5200...was it supposed to do that?...the car did not move it was like it was hard on the brakes...needless to say i did not try it again,i was afraid that either the engine was gonna blow or the clutch was gonna burn out....HELP!!!!...never had a car with launch control

With seeing the issues with launch control I would just skip it. The magazines said they got better 0-60 times without it.

I did lauch control with 50 miles on my car. Holy ***t, it hauled a**. I bought the warranty, so I figured, if I break my squeaky they can fix it.
