The technique of sliding the car with the rear brake while the engine as at full RPM on the rev limiter allows full power out of the turn as he eases off the throttle and off the rev limiter. It's like the reverse of normal gas/clutch/braking.
clutch on take off..I understand.I see & hear how Ken keeps the engine at high RPMs for almost the entire course.
It makes perfect sense coming out of the turns to have the engine at peak power.I like the paddleshift idea on racecars..& Corvettes,a great idea.
