THE BEST LAUNCH IS WHAT YOU'RE REALLY AFTER AS THIS WILL SET THE PACE FOR THE REST 

OF THE HEAT. EVERY VEHILE HAS AN IDEAL LAUNCH rpm RATE BASED ON THE DRIVE TYPE:

Front Wheel Drive - the perfect shift is between 4,000 TO 5,000 rpm

REAR WHEEL DRIVE - THE PERFECT SHIFT IS 5,000-7,000 rpm

4 WHEEL DRIVE - THE PERFECT SHIFT IS RIGHT BEFORE THE RED LINE.

nitrous oxide systemes - how does it work ?

All combution engines need oxygen. But how do get more oxygen into a running 
engine ? Well, there is a way NITROUS OXIDE [N20] is heated by the aftermarket 
systeme and released into the engine. When nitrous oxide is heated to about 570 
degrees F (~300C), it splits into oxygen.
