Last month, Jason Fenske taught you how to perfect a drag strip launch in the manual transmission car. This month, he’s back with the new video that shows you how to do the same thing in a car with the traditional, torque converter automatic. It’s the simple process, but not as simple as mashing a brake with your left foot and flooring the gas with your right. Because the torque converter multiplies torque–which Jason Fenske explains beautifully here–you don’t need as many revs to launch the automatic car as you do the manual car. It takes some trial and error before you strike a balance of enough revs to get off a line quickly, without generating too much wheelspin. Of course, if your vehicle is equipped with launch control, and this advice doesn’t really apply, since the computer controls everything. And it’s also worth mentioning that you shouldn’t hold revs for too long before launching, since that will generate a ton of heat.
