Power braking? not sure what you mean by that.

Holding onto the brake while revving the engine to the point where the tires are just about to squeal, then letting go of the brakes. It makes for a pretty decent launch in an automatic car.

Oh well then davmj4 yeah power braking is bad for your brakes, and not sure how made it is for your tranny but i would assume it puts more stress on it than it would be used to. But just like launching a manual tranny is bad for the clutch, so as long as the automatic tranny isnt like the Acura CL tranny then i dont think you ahve to much to worry about if you keep it to a minimum.

And trandsetter i read that holding the revs to 2500 then droping the clutch allows for the best launch, courtesy of Road and Track Mag.

I have an auto G35 sedan...and when i race i ususally power brake it at about 2000 rpm...that is not TOO hard on the engine or brakes, but gives a huge launch that works all the time ( at least for all the cars ive raced )..doing that will give you a great launch and you will be surprised at how quicly the G accelerates..plus power braking the car at 2000 rps before accelerating drops liek 0.3 seconds off the 0-60 [email protected]

I launch my 6mt at about 4K; I used to do 3K before I got my Falkens. That does slip the tires a little, but I want to get them warmed up (the only time I launch is at autocross).

You know what I drive. Pictures.

Powerbraking on Nissans does not give the best launch. Just stabbing the gas to the floor does. I have tested this at tracks in the past.

The TQ converter on the Nissans make you loose power if you TQ brake like that.

i would sugest reving the engine to about 2-3 k maybe 3500 at the max for a good launch, and just dump the clutch, sure its bad on the clutch, and maybe the transmisson but just dont do it to often, and the people at car and driver, motor trend ect. dump the clutches at 6k rpm or higher! but just dont do it alot.
