N54, 08 auto, this is my first automatic, 350z (6speed), EVO(5speed), 95' Eclipse GSX (5speed).

I really do miss the clutch, I have no clue how to launch this thing.

Hold the brake down as hard as you can whilst you press down to the accelerator to ~3,000 revs and then just let go of the brake and away you go.

Can do it from 1st or 2nd gear depending on the grip conditions.

we have a lot of torque down low compared to your previous cars. So you really gotta feed the power in if you dont wanna spin the tires.

Sticker tires? Drag Radials. NT05s. AWD on street tires FTW. I miss my AWD 96 Talon (400awhp) and my Evo X for that reason. I dont miss the evo as much as my Talon though.

Your talon was literally the same car as my eclipse.

Though not as easy as my Z to break loose, this car is still pretty easy to get sideways, no ebrake needed
