Nitromethane has about double to punch than gasoline, that means in turn it needs less air to process more fuel.
The higher the sidewalls of a tire, the softer and springy it becomes. The thinner the sidewall get, the stiffer they are, depends on the stretch,
too. Anyway the smaller you go, the smaller the tolerance for it to loose traction in a sideways motion aka drifting. Higher sidewalls are more
forgiving in turns. The demands depend on the axis and suspension work too. On the front, where you have lot's of turning motion, you want different
sidewall behavior for handling, also depending on the suspension work.
These huge soft drag tires are engineered to act like a little spring that provides enough torsion so the mechanical grip can build up, until the
forward motion set's in. It also protects the drive shaft from snapping because these tires and with the weight distribution have high mechanical grip
Add: There are other techniques like pulling the clutch, but some material will have to suffer, clutch, shaft, tires, suspension, engine internals.
Pumping the clutch once while launching and then easing out so there's not that much tire slip but enough to enable AWD system. Then we talk about
2.8-3.0 seconds 0-61mph (100kmh) but the 60mph we passed short before 2nd. so the 60-120mph time is a bit slower because second ends about two third
into the range.
Then the gears come closer together because the gearbox is actually for circuit racing and time attack built. So relative to 1st and 2nd, the other
gears are shorter except 6th. Above 1st there's always enough boost available with a small decent clutch kick so it just keeps on raging if you are
above 2nd. It's boost by gear. Means I decide the fuel map and boost settings etc for each gear. First two gears are restricted, only in third, when
aerodynamics take over (on video the car visibly lowers as it accelerates on the bumper cam) there's full boost/hate available.
