Hey List,

    A few days ago, i noticed a post that got no replies aside from "just practice".  Is this really the case?  I also am interested in 0-60 mph quick starts...I've tried just dropping the clutch @ around 3k RPM, and that's awful violent and jerky, I've also tried to slip the clutch a bit from around 3.5k RPM, but that makes me worry about clutch wear.  I've heard that Quattros can be tricky to launch, any suggestions?  I'm pretty ignorant as you can probably tell, and this is the first manual tranny I've driven, so any general comments would be very nice.

Thanks for understanding the plight of a newbie,
