How do you guys manage the race start with a DS4?

Do you use manual brake, brake, clutch? Or just put the revs up and engage 1st at soon the green light appears? Which one is more effective?

Thanks in advance

I googled peak hp/torque@rpm for the car I'm driving and keep the engine revving near that rpm, then drop it in first when I "feel" the green light.

I'll aim below peak torque and dump it into first a moment before green light. Enough revs to not bog down or spit it sideways.

Stay on Break, 1st Gear, Gas at Last red light , Release break when it's green
Don't know if it's the best but i'm doing good with it.

i put my car in reverse, floor it so i take out the guy, or more if i'm lucky, then throw it into first and do a sweet burnout to enable max grip function before achieving maximum forward momentum to victory.

I hold the car using the handbrake in first with full revs then release the brake when the green light shows .
