Was not the question how to properly launch a Lambo without doing damage?
I have driven just about every Lambo made, been in Kaminski's club for years and was trying to explain how to drive the car properly, not how to abuse it to gain tenths.
No, it was aboiut how to launch an AWD Lambo, and to get "quick" 0-60 times.

"I don't want to ruin my clutch, but I've never driven a 4WD sports car before. I've heard that for 4WD's, because of the differential, you really shouldn't jack-rabbitt start the car, but, instead, get it rolling, and then floor the accelerator. Is this true? What's the best way to get a quick 0-60 time? "

OK, you can have the last word... :sleepy:
LOL. Its not about having the last word. Its about what the question was. No biggie, really. I told him how to launch an AWD car, and you told him not to drop the clutch. You are wrong, if the objective is a "quick" time.

I think the reason for being sensitive with the clutch is less to do with 4wd but more to with the traction 4wd affords. A great deal of the engines force can be transmitted to the road with 4wd without wheelspin. So with massive grip on the one hand and massive power on the other, the clutch gets killed in the middle.
One thing I've always wondered is how you can do full bore starts on the stock clutch with modified 996TTs and how they still manage to last forever.

Because Porsche actually test their products relentlessly my friend.
Despite our differences on the other posts, here's I'll have to agree.
Also noticed that the clutches on the modern Lamborghinis are really light which can't make it any easier to modulate and prevent premature wear. Wonder how the E-Gear Murcie launches...
