    How to launch the manual 997 TT ?

    Hi guys..i had delivery of my 09 997 TT in under a month back. Break-in done and now its time to unleash the beast ! I actually had a few runs and the car is running good. I faced a problem with launching the car from a standstill. It seems there is a special technique to be applied in order to achieve an under 4 sec number to 100 km/h. It would be greatly appreciated if the AWD TT experts chime in and provide me with the valuable technique for me to apply !

    Turn off PSM, turn on overboost (the sport button), rev the engine to 4K RPM, pop the clutch and let er rip!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    I know a 911 Turbo is all about the 0-60mph headlines, but I prefer my clutch to live longer than a few thousand miles (especially with the 800Nm torque I have now) so I avoid fast standing starts myself.

    You have to change so quickly out of 1st anyway the revs just vanish!

    Personally I like going down to say 20 mph, sticking the car in 2nd and hitting some insane Gs as you are launched forwards.  It's litterally comical how fast the car is.  No need for standing-start adrenaline rushes...

    Thanks guys.. So i rev the engine to around 4k rpm and drop the clutch and full throttle ! I've been told that droping the clutch will have a very bad effect on the tranmission. They told me to SLIP the clutch rather than dropping it and the clutch will take it not the gearbox. anybody could explain how to slip the clutch ?!

    there is no problem, there is some guys here in the forum running 700~1000Hp with stock gearbox. will not be a stock car that will have problems with the gearbox...

     

    to get the perfect launch i prefer to slip much more than DROP..

     

    because if you drop you need more revs to let the car start like a rocket...

     

    i like to rev it to about 5000 5500  and slip it fast almost like a drop, but STILL a slip..

    BTW isnt because your car is stock that you need to F%CK the gearbox, the best way is preserve...

     

    the tricky in the turbo, is the looots of traction of the car, that almost always the traction beat the revs...

    Definitely a "valuable" technique because the clutch and transmission is going to take a beating.

    IOW, "valuable" can also mean "expensive."

    IMO, take it easy with that drivetrain! Smiley
