Play with the rpm you leave at and the amount of time to let out the clutch until you find the best launch.

Obviously, you have to be careful not to slip it real bad, you probably don't want to put the engine at 5k and slip the clutch for 2 seconds, but you should be able to find a nice range where you get off the line quickly.
Thanks Rayhawk!
I figured it would be something like that, just don't want to burn the clutch. Maybe I was too concerned about that and popped the clutch to quickly. Need to practice, that all!
