    Hold it around 3500 RPM if you value your clutch.

    Wouldn't this vary depending on wheels / tyres / suspension / engine modifications etc?

    ESP off an around the 5k mark. Any less an it just bogs down. Also depends on the surface and weatehr conditions mind.

    You'll lose about 1000-1500rpm when you drop the clutch so you need to make sure that you launch about 1000rpm above your full boost level.
