    easy, if you want to drag it, practice your launches at 3k revs, not from idle...

    Yeah if you dont have enough revs it will bog down since its 4wd and the BM's will not have such a bad problem since they are rear wheel drive.

    But get it right and it should fly!!

    S4's have so little lag. Give it 3000rpm or more from a standstill and you'll smoke 'em!

    Only other way i know of for my car in that situation is by slipping the clutch a little.

    This also makes the car not bog down.
