Default tires spin running 0-60 with G-meter

I did few runs yesterday with G-meter. It has been first time I used it, and my best 0-60 time (last run after I learned a bit) was 4.3 (0-50: 3.30; 0-40: 2.42; 0-30:1.70; 0-20: 1.03; 0-10: 0.30). It seems to be consistent with what other members got here.

What I am wondering is how much wheel spin I should expect during take off? I run with Trac/VDS - OFF in Sport/Manual mode. I did not rev the engine, so I just released the brakes and smashed the pedal. After seeing some videos on YouTube I expected a huge wheel spin with tire smoking, etc. However, all I got was some very moderate wheel spin at start and then again some moderate (about as much) wheel spin during 1-2 shift. Just wondering where from all these videos with tires burning at the launch are coming?

what you see in youtube are peolple doing burnouts, they press the brake pedal just enough to keep the front wheels locked and give it gas to make the rear tires spin.
next time try preloading the torque converter by powerbraking
press the brake give it gas to about 2000 2500 rpm and start you runs to see what whapens to you 0-60 times hopefully it willl get better but i do not know how much better it can get, with the times you already have.
hope this helps

Here is what happens if you rev to 3K, hold the brake, then mash the gas, release the brake, rev to redline.
