Shift "manually", try and avoid the 2-3 upshift until 2nd gear is completely powered out, gotta keep your powerband wide haha

Don't do that ^

Turn traction control off, put the shifter in 3 and leave it there. Then simply work the gas pedal until you get going, then floor it after you're up around 15-20 mph so you don't just spin.

Because 3rd is a 1:1, it will feel that way. Putting the shifter in 3 will automatically run you through 1st, 2nd and hold you at 3rd gear (essentially keeping you out of overdrive)
