    BOOST a the starting line!?

    I noticed we get a BOOST if we push down the throttle at the right time after the light goes green. WHY? Isn't this supposed to be simulator? It's not Need for Speed of Grand Theft Auto! I wish I got a boost in my real car when I press the throttle at the right time after the light turns green...

    Yes please, I don't understand what is the behavior you're getting. Actually, this weekend I've made about 200 race starts in different track/cars since I was lame at those and I needed some practice.

    Never found anything like you describe (either that or I'm not understanding completely what you're saying)

    I have found... many times actually... that in online races, other players are able to jump start with ease, always leaving me in the dust.
    And as you described, it looks like they have a boost or something.

    I remember though that if you modulate the clutch pedal at the start (even if auto-clutch is ON), you're able to perform better from a stand still.
    Better than the auto-clutch though.

    I'll give it a try tonight.

    That is true and was one of my takeaways of the weekend You can do a few milliseconds before but it's risky, if you over-trust yourself, you'll end-up with a penalty.

    Other thing that worked perfectly to me, It was to release 60% of clutch and keep brakes on hard, once the green light appears, release everything (but throttle, obviously) and modulate the gas input for minimum wheelspin

    Well, the thing is, I don't know when exactly to press the throttle. I got it by chance in my last race but forgot to save the recording. Hopefully Franco Ferrari can verify.

    It is not, however, if it was, it shouldn't have a boost. That would be against the rules cheating.

    Yes, but that wouldn't be very fair now would it?
