    I am a long time Forza motorsport enthusiast, and for just as long I have been tuning. Since the beggining of forza, I have been enthused in drag racing. Weather it be split screen or online. I myself have some very fast, competitive, and consistent RWD 1/4 mile tunes. To cut to the chase, I have recently dabbled in FWD drag tuning. Being a life long honda fanatic and all, it is a suprise that I have not tried sooner. I street tune all my vehicles, and mastering gears is NOT my issue. Telemetry is the key! But I cannot break high 11's. So basically i need some advice for weight control and launch technique? I am not asking for tunes! i do not give mine away so i would not ask the same, tuning is a time consumption. And is the key to forza fun! Just one tuner asking others for advice! Thanks in advance. BTW i am using a full weight 97 civic type r, fully built motor (all motor, no power adder), race suspension, drag radials, race trans, race clutch, race diff. Any part that I have not listed, I am not using on this current build.

    Are you racing with the clutch on or off?

    Clutch on. I have improved a lot since my post. But yes clutch. Rev catch has been working well for me. I launch at about 8grand and catch at about 2- 25. Down to 11.49consistently. On a full six gears. Lol but I know it can be faster

    Try without the clutch - it doesn't give you a great degree of control in this game, and I find you can make cleaner starts with it off.

    I leave it on for drifting though ;)

    Manual/no clutch does make launching easier but, shift speeds are slower. Yea manual w/clutch is the best for drifting, so fun
