Yep, different in all cars. My sweet spot is 3800rpms. Any lower and I bog, more and I spin.

It's all about practice.

It's really depends on your tire and power. If your is a stock C5 with an average street tire I would be easy off the line. Almost just lay into it from idle with a street tire or 2500 or less.

For a C5? Buy a nice set of 16x10 wheels and wrap them with a 28x10.5 Hoosier QTP (my personal fav). Do a decent burnout to get them nice and shhhhticky before you launch. Now follow these steps:

Step 1: Clutch in and make sure you're in 1st gear

Step 2: Mash the throttle to the floor

Step 3: Once you hear your rev limiter, side step your foot off the clutch

Step 4: Enjoy

Last vette I saw at the track bumping off the rev limiter was towed home with a broken halfshaft.... Just saying. I think that was a few months ago.

330' also shows how the suspension tuning is working after the launch and settling.
