            if you leave tc on mate as soon as you experience some wheel spin on take off then all your power is gone, launch with some wheel spin quick shift into second, first is far to short and dumps to much power and you will sit there spinning away, dont bounce it off the limiter in second and power away in 3rd, have a play with your first few runs mate and learn how the power is delivered in the lower gears so you can work on perfecting your launch, have a fun time mate.

                redlining it wont give you the best accelaration i think they peak around 5500 so then you should be changing to keep the accelaration up , could be wrong but sure thats when they are peaking ???

I will get my cousin to put the Videos up on you tube later, the Times 14s i was running top speed 90mph, i did 5 runs could not be asked to do anymore, 1st run was with Me and mhy cousin in his Golf GTI i caked him by a few car lenths...2nd i didnt get off the line and some CHAV in a old renualt clieo beat me, should have seen his face like he was on cloud 9, 3rd was with a ZR which had loads of work done to it 20L Remapped the guy said it was putting out 220+ bhp..4th was with a local guy and it was a ford with a tuned engine and AS PD says take the Seats and all that out and the car may go quicker NOT !!! Beat him too, 5th the last 1 was just me alone and I NEarly cooked my Cluch !!!!!!! so after that i ended it before i did any dammage..... Watch out for the Videos there are very good, there were done by a pro.....LOL
