I have been hearing alot about a third gear boost launch out of a manual trans... how is this performed, anything bad about it? just want some info so i can try it once hahahahaeelout:thumbsup
Good advice, and words of wisdom about the parts, LOL Luckily I've always been able to limp home...You have to work all 3 pedals at the same time. Throttle and Brake with your right foot and clutch with you left. Hold the Brake, Give it throttle with your toe and slowly start to let the clutch out but hold the brake until it starts to lug the engine and build boost. From there Let her go and hold on. (also could end up having to pick up pieces out of the middle of the road - KABOOM!)
Im actually thinking thats as hard as I would ever be on my clutch. dont think I want to pick up peices from a 3rd gear boost launch, and im sure even a dual disk couldnt handle that much slippage for too long or too many times.Good advice, and words of wisdom about the parts, LOL Luckily I've always been able to limp home...
Don't forget the brake if you are going to be involved in a race... I never have built boost on the line,, I can't work 3 pedals, LOL.
Here's a redline clutch drop with a South Bend Clutch Con OFE. 450rwhp 900rwtq.

a video would be badd:butt::thumbsup:thumbsupI do 4th gear boosted launches in mine I don't lift off the clutch until I see over 40PSI....
Just go full throttle, then let the clutch out some until boost starts coming up, then let the clutch out more, and more, until you finally just lift your foot off the pedal.
I'll get a video of it.
A factory clutch won't handle a 3rd gear launch, even more a boosted launch, you'll be alot slower boosting a 3rd gear launch than a high RPM clutch drop in 2nd.
If you aren't pushing 400+rwhp, trying to do a boosted 3rd gear launch is just a step backwards. Use RPM and inertia of the engine (rotating assembly) to get scooted off the line. Lots of throttle, lots of RPM and just slip off teh clutch. You'll find a sweet spot to dump the clutch at to avoid too much wheel spin...
