What I've found is the 200q20v launch technique is
very different Vs the urq. A strong-running urq is
light enough in weight to light the front tires easily
and this really helps to get a good launch and keep
the boost up while being smooth. The 200q20v is more
difficult for me to launch smoothly because I don't
(will not) break the front tires loose. Too much RPM
on the launch is the big culprit in not beeing smooth
with the 200q20v. Try RPM around 2500-3000. The clutch
must be used instead of the front tires to keep the
boost up and the launch smooth. Balancing the slipping
clutch against the throttle/RPM/boost really does just
takes a lot of practice to achieve the desired
