And when you do this, do you get a nasty burning clutch smell? The reason I ask is because the fastest acceleration I got out of my 5ktq was doing what you describe, but the resulting smell told me I didn't want to do that very often.
I had to cross 4 lanes of highway and picked an opening. Had to get through fast. The Audi grin was definitely there.
