    never been to*†he strip so dont take my word, but just to throw it out there, i'd slip the clutch at like 2.5k then nail it when you get rolling, depeding on how sticky your tires , with those mods you might break them loose from a roll

    Too many variables. Track conditions, tires, mods, etc.

    It's different every time. Slipping the clutch from 2000-3000 seems to work. Unless you have an aftermarket clutch, you may have issues trying to launch.

    My stock clutch won't let me hook up at the track. Either the tires stick and I bog, or they slip, or the tires GRIP and my clutch slips.

    On street tires, you may just want to leave at idle though, or else you're going to spin a BUNCH.
