Depends which model you've got mate, i don't know what you've got, but if you've only got a 1.4 i don't think you'll be teaching anyone a lesson will you?! lol [:p][;)]

ive got 2 1.4 and a 1.9 tdi

Making sure you're in the 1.9tdi is the first place to start! Can imagine being sat there think right, I'm gonna show this idiot - lights change, foot down..... oh sh*t, i'm in the 1.4 ha ha!

Ok, if you want a proper fast start with lots of wheel spin, clutch in, lots of gas, bout 4-5k revs, clutch out very fast, you'll be off, just control the wheel spinning, also it';s best to turn traction control off to do anything like this.

Get a nitrous system installed.

However... As it's completely illegal to use on the public road I take no responsibility for you getting arrested and being jailed for life.

Try again mate... nitrous is completly legal on the public highway. as long as your insurance know about it.

it is only illegal if you decide to brake the speed limit or drive dangerously...

Find where maximum torque is produced for your engine.

First gear, handbrake on.

Turn ESP off.

Hold revs wherever max torque is for car ... lift clutch to very start of bite point or just before it .... when ready to launch, dump the clutch and handbrake ... keep wheelspin to minimum whilst stomping the throttle into the floor asap.

Get ready for clutch slip and broken DMF's.

I'm pretty sure on Fifth Gear they said it's LEGAL to have installed in the car however ILLEGAL to use on the road.

Also, according to Akamoto.co.uk...

Having a nitrous oxide system installed in
your car is not illegal. Akamoto provide these kits to our
customers for the use of off road events and shows that are
hosted on private land. However Injecting nitrous oxide into
your engine in whilst driving on a public road can not really
be commented on as we can not find any law against this but
at the same time we cant find one that permits it. So we recommend
keeping the bottle turned off until you're in a suitable
surrounding to inject nitrous oxide, e.g. drag strip.


If I am wrong, I apologise.
