I hate new people, just a FYI

Saying gun kill people is like saying the keyboard misspelled the work

I don't care what you do at home, keep it to yourself.

feathering is when your not letting go your clutch all the way while your launching

hey im new here..never really been in a forum, but since i got a gsr, then i guess i would get helpfull information. i like it =].
but yes feathering is not letting go of ur clutch completly till you grab traction. "dumping" is revin to the rpm u want and letting go of the cluth completely...i've dumped it on the care before at high RPMs and it doesent really work for me, cause too much wheel spin. so my opinion is that featherin is better. but it works different ways for differrent ppl, is just how u prefer or feel comfartable with

yeah i found out that buy doing a burnout before you come up to the line heats up your stock or performance tires too quick. it works better for slicks, but any who you can get a quicker 60' time with out doing a burn out, but feathering it at around 4500-5000 and let it rip, you will increase your times just about every time.

i mean whats not to love. besides gas mileage and the perfect styling it gets the ladies attention, doesnt have a riced out image like civics and can still put down 600hp+ for those hardcore guys, and still get 30 mpg.

i stay around 4500 rpm, tire pressure is key (i learned this over all last season), don't be afriad to drop to 20 psi, remember to re-inflate before you go home though. i do 2.2 60' most of the time (on BF drag radials)

With new mods this season i'm hoping for 2.1 60' maybe a break into 2.0?..(day-dream)..it'd be nice though

GO BUCKS! WTB: time to work on my car.

pre loading is your friend. Way less broken axles. Just use your ebrake let the clutch a little out to where you feel it lurch and hold then when green lights up dump and feather the clutch. Make sure you put your ebrake down lol aint a burn out show

What a four door! DAM!

easier on your car and doesnt spin tires to much.

i went out and practiced in my ls..didnt really go above 3500 rpm but feathering is definitely the way to go, otherwise i just spun the tires too much and slowed down. if i had a two step though...so much nicer

235/60R15 M/T ET street radial, modified OEM poly-filled mounts, L-Con traction bars, and spraying off the line! Shaking down 1.8 60's. Usually I let off and feather the clutch a bit around 4000rpm or I get bad wheel spin.

It's also pretty dependent on how well the track was prepped. I've went out some nights and seen FWD cars do 2.0 60's on street tires, and have also seen people on slicks barely bust a 2.0 60'

My VTEC screams in the silence of the night.

Just curious... what kind of motor mounts are you talking about?

I'd recommend doing a test n tune day at your local drag strip. What I've found is that the fastest pass doesn't always FEEL like the fastest pass. Remember, smooth is fast. Often times your PR will come on a pass that you don't expect to be your fastest. If you're at the track, you can systematically try and see what actually works, quantitatively.
