There are a few threads that talk about launching the TH. Just search around. But for me, as I've posted here before, I've found that auto mode and no power braking works best for me. Just mash and go. I've tried all sorts of combinations. Actually the only thing I do is to punch the button to turn off traction control before a launch. I do get a little wheel spin but not much. With that my best is 3.0 to 60 and 11.2 in the 1/4 at 122.
