Yeh.. dumping SUCKS on a 6-puck clutch. It feels like your car's going to break in half when you do..
I'm really not happy with my clutch mostly because I live in Los Angeles, home of the traffic jams. on any normal night when I'm going from place to place without traffic, I love the instant power it gives me, but given where I live, it's not worth it.
I've driven with the 6-puck for almost a year, and it's just not cool even now! I've gotten it to where I can accelerate / engage smoothly, so it's not SO bad. Either way, though, it requires more effort than it's worth to drive in traffic. blah to my clutch!
As for launching, feather / dump method works best for me.. Release / Feather / Engage / Dump / Head Jerk.
For the Non-Vtec vs Vtec cars.. Yeah, I went from LS, to LS-Turbo, to LS-Vtec Turbo. In each stage of the mods, there was a dramatic increase in power and "head jerk." When vtec kicks in, it's an incredible feeling of power. It feels like power is finally being released for use. I've set my vtec engagement at 5000rpm, a little late for my small turbo, but it's nice nonetheless.
