I've tried with stabilitrac on and off, I've tried with TC on and off, both off and both on. I've used paddle shift, not used it, just left it in "manual" but not touched them so it'd do it's thing. I've left it in drive. I also don't know if starting in 1st gear to 2nd and to 3rd is best for accelerating or if 2nd all the way to 60mph?? What about 1st to 3rd, simply clicking quickly twice with the paddle?? Basically, What's the best way to practice/use to accelerate the quickest with a stock L99??? How about burning the tires first?? Is it useful? I'm sure it is as I watch people brake torque the **** out of their tires before launching but I just don't understand much of the "implied" or "understood" logic/knowledge behind some of what I see getting done and some of it I'm just not sure of the sequence. I like driving the car, but people often ask??? Show me what it's got, Get Sideways!!" and I feel intimidated and "called out" to do something that I'm not entirely SURE how to do. Sad but true.......

Manual mode on, Competition mode on, launch in 1st gear driving almost to redline every gear using paddle shifters (look at the HUD for RPM). It lauches fast, have taken down Pont GTs, 06-07 Vettes, Lexus, Z350...Want to power slide around corners, start off in the same sequence and puch it, but don't shift to 3rd gear to fast, tires spin just fine going around corners in high RPMs in 2nd gear. Took down a Lexus IS F (416 HP V-8) yesterday, I was behind him and we were turning left onto a two lane highway, light turned green, he took the inside lane I took the outside lane, started my Camaro 2SS in 1st gear as above, before I turned the corner paddle shifted to 2nd gear, power slide a bit and before I hit 3rd gear was already blowing by him no problem. Got up to about 70 real quick and he new he was done. Slowed down the road to cruise controll at 55 MPH as he came along side me and gave me a big thumbs up. My Camaro=2011 2SS, Auto, Borla S-Type CatBack exhaust, HallTech CAI (huge air filter, 101mm tube w/heat shield). Blows them away. Drive it like I stole it :>)
