Learn how to launch correctly. Don't simply rev up and dump the clutch. Feathering will net you better results.

Re: How do I race?

Yep, try not to spin the tires too much. Also, focus on your reaction time, DONT do a burnout before, bunrouts make street tires less grippy. Other than that, dont blow a shift and you should be fine.

Yeah, if the guy would decide to release his 92-96 kit already. You have no idea how long this guy is taking to release it. I've been talking to him for 2 years now and it still isn't out. If you have a 4th gen, you should just go forbidden motorsports instead.

Re: How do I race?

Before hitting the track, there are 3 things that you should consider: how good your car is, how you drive strategically and how to fully know the racetrack.
