Going to the track for the first time!

I know to turn DSC off but does anyone have any tips for my launching? I'd like to know what rpm to drop it at. And what time should I expect?

I have a 330Ci btw.

Take out as much weight as possible (passengers, spare tire). Turn off your A/C. Launch at the highest RPM you're comfortable with. I think 3000 is the recommended launch RPM, although I'm not entirely sure. Expect low to mid 15s unless you're an awesome driver, then I think you could feasibly break into the 14s.

As long as you get a good start its possible to get into the high 14s. Without a start though youre stuck in the 15s. Must I repeat: its all about the start, and PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!!
