Best Way to Launch

Hey guys, I have question what is the best way to launch a RWD 8at FBO 335i? Launch control spins like crazy, and so does brake boosting till 2000rpm in sports plus. Should I maybe try launching in second? I would really like your input and experiences

Wider tires!

Yeah, unfortunately that's the nature of RWDs. Removing some air, helps a great deal. Like @pdegene suggested, wider tires help but it's costly and you may not need/want new tires. Heating up the tire helps as well.

Have you tried painting the tread of your tires with super glue prior to launching the car into outer space?

Or have you tried using square wheels and tires to improve traction?

try 30psi rear tires, 2nd gear launch no boost at 1,900rpm .... 2.0 could be made with normal radial tires.

I did this with Michelin PS4S and hit 1.9 60. Ran 12.5 @ 110.

You can also flash w/ MHD and reduce power by gear. Limit power in 1 & 2 and use launch control.
