When some guy is starting fast from a stand-point (like in a race), does he rev up and then simply let off the clutch very quickly? Shouldn't that make the tires spin/screech? Or does he find a balance point for a quick start with no tire spinning?

-When you start from standpoint, do you rev it slightly and then start letting go of the clutch or do you first get to friction point and then start applying the throttle?

I'm pretty new to driving, will get my license soon, so I was just wondering.
Thanks!

Find the balance between revving and screeching the tires. Don't rev up too much though, it'll blow the engine.

if you are new to driving, you shouldn't be racing.
you learn it with experience. it all depends what kind of car you drive.
4-cylinders i have no clue because i would never drive one.
straight-6 find the friction point, and rev. pop the clutch fast when you want to go.
v-8 new ones are different than old ones in my experience, but my older one you start out normal, just revving really high so once the clutch comes out you are already booking it.

to the guy above me. you can't blow your engine from doing that. if you rev it high for a long time then it might cause problems, but revving up to 7000 rpm will have no problems what so ever.

Well it would but not immediately but still do be careful when revving up the engine and having to rev over the 'redline' isn't really that much helpful either, other than maybe heating up the engine before starting it again while it rested for a day or so.

Also, there should be a balance between the clutch and the accelerator, find it and you should be able to obtain a slight understanding of how and when to let go of the clutch and engage the accelerator.

what are you talking about? let it rest for a day or so?
an engine completely cools off within a few hours.

and i do redline my v8. it takes off way faster. like i said, it depends on the car.

I mean, when you don't use it for a day. Like when you sleep? when you do not use it in general? we used to do that but nowadays we don't use our cars that often, gas expenses are pocket pickers.

and for the redline, I wouldn't really recommend it since you'd be burning up tires.

What I do is as soon as I take my foot off of the brake, I put a tiny bit of pressure on the throttle. Just enough to move the rpm needle. Maybe up to 1,500 rpms or so, then let out the clutch just to the friction point and ease though it. But if i'm on a hill and need to get moving asap, I rev it a little higher (between 2 and 3) and let out the clutch faster (not just popping it up, mind you).

When I'm just going normally I rev it up slightly and slowly let off the clutch. I know the balance pretty well though so I don't have to rev it up much, it just makes it smoother. When I want to go fast I just do the same thing but... faster lol. I try not to let the tires spin too much though, so that's when its better to know the balance well. This is in my 4 cylinder Escort, btw.
