launching...again

when coming off of the line...do some racers ride on the clutch or is it best to let it go?

It all depends on the machine set-up and the experience of the rider.

THE GOAL:

Achieve the quickest launch, maximum tire adhesion and "nose down attitude"


Hope This Helps!

id say ride it out, unless you have wheelie bars you cant pop the clutch, cause that will get your front end up, then you have to let off to stop from looping your bike.

just release it as fast as you can in a smooth motion to avoid popping it.

remember forward not up.

as soon as the strip opens i'm gonna give it a shot. i never dragged a bike before(only cars), and i'm a little unsure about myself. i figure i'll take it a little easy the first few runs before i give it all she's got.
