Yeah, you are going newbie on us! LOL.

Do not dump the clutch on your 930, and shift slowly and carefully. Your car will still be fast. And if you are getting beaten off the line, just power on by in second gear. That way it looks like you are not even trying.

Your car is designed to take off at any speed when already moving, a very good roll-on (in motorcycle speak). Just not from a standing start.

If you can't live with that, just increase the power and decrease the weight and eventually you will be able to nurse it off the line and still go blistering fast.

What all the good race drivers say is that you should always be smooth and deliberate in your shifting, regardless of car type. When you see footage of real racers driving, they don't bang through the gears at all, they are effortless and smooth. All your inputs should be smooth, it keeps the car more stable under braking, acceleration and cornering.

Jackie Stewart used to drive the same car, no matter what it was, faster than anyone else, and it was because he was so smooth with every control that the car never got out of shape.
