I have been practicing on getting the S3 "off the mark" quickly and without any "bog down". It seems to me the best way launch an S3 is 4000 RPM let the clutch bite enought to get the car to roll slightly and then fully engage the clutch and floor the accellerator at the same time. This results in a sharp and aggressive launch with a small amount of wheel spin (more of a slight rumbling) and lots of pull without any bog down. anything below 4000RPM and it bogs down. This seems quite high RPM to launch on a "stock" clutch, is the S3 clutch "man enough" for this, or are they prone to fail early. Obviously doing the above does not actually give much clutch slip at all as it is almost "side stepping it" but doing it from a point it has monentarily partly engaged rather than from the floor with and earth shuddering snap! Or does anyone else know a more clutch "friendly" way to launch the S3 ?
