      I have a bone stock 2012 gti 6mt, did a search and most of the threads on this are for 1.8ts, im going to the local drag strip tonight and might put my car down the track a time or 2, what RPM do you guys usually launch at? or do you usually roll it out (had a 400whp civic that i had to because axles were getting expensive ) just curious i wouldn't normally ask a question like this but since the strip closes in afew weeks its usually busy this time of year and im limited to the amount of runs i will get in. thank you for your input

      launched stage II GTI at 4k rpms? Are your tires made of glue?

      If you don't have anything to do before you go to the track, practice in your neighborhood or some abandoned street. Your specific launch capabilities depend on your car, your mods, your tires, etc.

      Start at 2500 and go up from there. See where you can get to where you can slip the clutch just a bit and not lose revs.

      I think the DSG launch control is set at 3500 on the GTI's.
