I just broke my new srt-4 in so I raced my friend with an evo, he smoked me.
Anyone have some advice on launching strategy? Good performance upgrades?
I don’t like losing.

Motor Mounts alone aren't going to eliminate wheel hop, you are going to have to lower that front end to get rid of MOST of it. Then yeah, MBC, S1, and wastegate should do the job.. Or just race him from a roll..

Agreed, if you raced the guy from a dead stop, you'll lose. You may start catching up after you hit 4th gear. Race him from a roll (10mph or 30mph or 60-65) and you should (should, not 100%) win.

Indeed, but one good thing is it's a lot less strain on the car.. :jester:
Yea but anyone can race from a roll. The skill is launching, your first gear is the most important gear in a race. I don't care how fast your car is, if you can't lauch you will loose to a bicycle. (not really just saying)

Try slipping out the clutch to eliminate traction problems. Don't let off the gas but feather the clutch. Its messes the clutch up a little but helps to keep the power to the floor. This is how I use to pull 1.7 60 ft in my civic.

Racing from a roll is so fucking gay.
There is a reason why certain people race from only a roll, and my reason is not because my car is FWD.

Then it's a drivers race. A race from a roll is a race between the cars, a race from a stop is a race between the drivers. I prefer roll races because all things aside, it's the most accurate measure of who's car really is the faster one. :readclose

Having the faster car is important. But being the better driver is even better. I would feel great if i beet him with skill and having to over come his traction advantage.

I have way more respect for someone who can beat a car that has 41 more HP because they can drive there car.
