Turobteener- I agree with you- this is how I launch my car. I have figured out that a 4 speed car with big power has to be tapped against the rev limiter a few times in first gear in order to get the m.p.h up going into second gear. Now bouncing a car off of the limiter is not the best thing for it (especially when your tensioners go bad...), but if you have a soft touch rev limiter its not so bad. But letting the clutch take the heat is the best way to handle launching these cars- I have never broken a gearbox from launching it to hard including the 930 powered carrera 4 that I used to have.
