This is an M5 virtual driving school. It applies to an M5 and probably to other tricky manual transmissions as well.
In the M5 a gentle launch just needs to be revved to about 1000 and then you just let the clutch out. There's really no jerk or anything. I don't know, but see if this guy's site will help you. Just look at the instructional videos.
Ok, I'll buy that. Sensitive...lag...very different, same result, same solution. Then again, I'm coming from a pontiac, so sensitive is a relative term. It is the same issue though, making an adjustment that is not foot/feel coordinated.Nick325xiT 5spd said:Extremely sensitive? :lmao: The problem is that there's a long delay between what your foot does and what the car does. Ever driven an E36? You actually could control your launch with the throttle. The E46s are so slow that you can only modulate the ultra-vague clutch.
