Is there a faster way to get on the move? Any advice is greatly appreciated?

I have also seen : stradle the front fender (this you keep bike in nuetral and hit the button from the front with the opposite hand, by the time your on the bike its already running.
Hold the rear fender with both hands, pretty easy, just run up hit the button while your getting on.
Both hands on helmet, same thing.
The main thing is to practice with someone giving you a start and time you for 1000 feet. Keep practicing escpecially the day before the race and you'll have the holeshot

P.S. in case I wasn't clear, e-start the bike in 1st gear, less chance of stalling (which I have done in 2nd gear start)

Hear in so cal we race desert H and H scrambles you get the point any ways this is what works for me at the same time as you hit the magic button kick it over to works every time for me and practice practice practice so you guys due a bomb start to, cool it is the bigest rush in racing
I race So Cal dez as well. I don't have the magic button on my 01 WR. But I have found that with practice and a good warm engine I can get off the line faster then electric start bikes. I run a Hot Camshafts auto deco cam.
My problem isn't getting off the line. It's staying in front!!! Which never happens. I have to say that there is something special about a good bomb start. Nothing like hearing 100 or so bikes come to life at once. Man what a rush.
