Default How do I start fast with a bad traction car?

I have noticed when racing the "Drivers Battle" that others are beating me most of the time with cars that spin tires a lot out of the gate. With cars with good traction, I usually win. I'm at level 10, so I am racing against stiff competition, but still... Can someone who is at a high level explain how to start off fast with slick tires?

My strategy is to try to get a perfect start. Change to 2nd gear pretty quick... about half way up the RPMs. Then I switch to 3rd gear pretty quickly too... about 3/4ths the RPMs.

The thing is, it looks like guys are instantly faster than me. Like they start right out of the gate without their tires spinning. I have tried shifting to 2nd gear instantly, but that still doesn't seem to work as good.

Any help is appreciated.
