With the amount of low rpm torque you are developing, and the multiple techniques you have tried, there is no way you are going to get a better launch without bigger and better tires. My suggestion would have been the slow roll on in 1st, but you have already tried that. I think one of the auto mags R+T? tested a RMS supercharged M roadster and found only a couple of tenths improvement due to inability to get the power to the ground. Go with the tire upgrade, watch out for your clutch with the improved traction and then get some 0-60 times for us. Have you obtained any 1/4 times?
