    Hold it around 3500 RPM if you value your clutch.

    Nor did I,just a bit of whatever creeping in mate as I and a few gave you good sound advice and you seemed to fly in the face of it so do as you will.

    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.
