    1. Left foot on brake
    2. Turn ESP OFF
    3. Hit the accelerator all the way (revs should limit to 3k)
    4. Take a deep breath
    5. Remove left foot and watch the world go backwards.

    Enjoy!

    It doesn't work as well on winter tyres!

    I would also add hit sport button for added aural pleasure to macdaddy's list

    Be careful launching, look out for your prop shaft in the rear view mirror haha!

    ....what does it mean if I did all of the above but when I plant the accelerator the revs go up to +- 3000 but don't stay there? it drops back down and there is a big time lag before it launches?

    thanks.

    If it drops back down then you must be releasing the accelerator.
    You have to plant the right foot all the way down and keep it there, the revs will sit somewhere near 3k and the engine will rumble and make weird noises like it's running on 3 cylinders.
    Then release the brake and watch everything go blurred in your peripheral vision.

    Only then can you change the position of the accelerator to suit your needs.
