how do i get a good start off the line? I use a wheel and I want to come off the line with torque but everytime I do I either disqualify myself because I go on red or come off like a snail and since my car is a GT3 the hand brake doesnt work so how do I do it?

Do you have a clutch pedal?
If not, you just hold the brake and a bit of throttle to bring up the revs. Release the brake and mash the throttle.
Many of the turbo cars will bog down if you don't have enough revs at launch. Better to hit the throttle for lots of revs just before green and release the brake at the green.
Personally I give it big revs dump the clutch then control the wheelspin.

Map a button to clutch.
Hold the clutch and put it in 1st while the lights are red.
Rev up the required amount and release the clutch button as the lights go green.
You might need to hold a little brake to stop rolling on hill starts but I haven't needed to yet.
