Drag Racing Beginner

Hello everyone as the title states I'm a true noob at the race track. I have done 8 passes total and my best time as of now is 14.63. I have nothing special with my car other than a IE intake and red top coil packs. I'm DSG as well. I'm just looking for helpful tips on what rpm you guys launch at and what products youd recommend. I'm not trying to build a 10 sec 1/4 mile but I would like to get into mid 13s.

It's a The Fast and the Furious reference, not actual advice.

I'm sorry but I have to chime in, and in no way am I bashing now BUT, if you are asking about drag racing and haven't seen the most iconic import drag racing scene of all time you need to study the gear changes in F&F 1 lol.
