I asked CrashTestDummy last Sunday at an AutoX in Louisville what RPM he launched at - he said he did it by feel but would look next run. He told me right at 5,000 RPM and I assume with not much slip. Not saying this has anything to do with street driving but it may give you info for quick launches from lights. The tires did spin a bit but not a lot and a little smoke and nice squeeling for a second - didn't see any tire hop - looked very smooth. I don't know squat about road or drag racing so take this info with a grain of salt - maybe ask C.T.D. for a "professional" opinion.
