It took me quite a few launches to get a feel for launching with a clutch. Iíve got about 2k miles on the transmission. I seemed to get more traction attempting to do my burnout than my actual launch haha!
Have you heard of the clutch tamer ? CLUTCHTAMER.COM
What is the ClutchTamer ?
...A small hydraulic cylinder that takes much of the inconsistent human element out of precisely controlling your car's clutch pedal. It's adjustable for exactly where in the clutch pedal's travel that it becomes active, and adjustable for rate of release from that point on. The cylinder has characteristics similar to those of a 90/10 shock, pulling it's rod out is easy, only the return stroke of the cylinder is controlled. Because the ClutchTamer attaches to the clutch pedal itself, it works equally well on both hydraulic and mechanical clutch release systems/linkage.
With our ClutchTamer installed, only the final part of clutch pedal's release is slowed down, not the whole release cycle, while the rest of the clutch pedal's travel works like normal. If you are using the clutch pedal during shifts, the slipper will soften drivetrain shock during the gear changes as well. Casual driving is NOT affected, no need to dis-connect the ClutchTamer for daily driving.
The Clutch Tamer slip controller allows you to choose a clutch with more capacity than you would normally choose. Typically that clutch would be too aggressive, but the addition of the first stage of the slip control provides the ability to apply only partial pressure initially, allowing slip. The second stage allows additional pressure to come in over time to insure lockup farther down the track.
The most surprising thing that you will realize with the ClutchTamer is how much more power you will be able to put down without breaking parts!
Below is pictured an installed Universal Underdash version of the ClutchTamer. It features independently rotating mounting tabs on each side of the dash bracket, popular with the Muscle Car customers that don't want to modify their mint original dash.
