Launching the 4Motion / R32
There are two ways of launching
Revving the engine to a relatively low RPM, Bogging the car at taking off and spinning the clutch while youíre at it.
Youíll smoke the clutch pretty soon if you keep doing this. This will also add some shock load to the transmission and drive-train.
Revving the engine to a relatively high RPM, you spin the tires but only just long enough to keep the clutch from slipping, then you work your way down to the perfect rpm for that particular driving condition.
The trick with any 4WD car is to get all 4 tires spinning immediately but just long enough to keep the clutch from slipping (and take some of the shock load off the drive-train and transmission).
Try this with high rpm and work them down with each launch until you get the one that works for you.
Remember, if a 4300 rpm launch bogs or causes clutch slippage, then a 5000 rpm launch is better for the car. Also its good to note that launching on the street is different than launching on the track, so adjust revs accordingly.
All this with ESP off
