1/4 mile launching

I'm going to Jap Show this weekend, and since there's RWYB happening, I'm going to race. Thing is, I haven't done any drag racing before.

So, how do I actually launch? I've heard things like "side-stepping the clutch", but have no idea what it means.

What I'm thinking of doing is this:

1: Apply the handbrake

2: Dial the revs in to about 4k rpm

3: Bring the cluch up till it bites

4: Lights change, handbrake off, clutch out and some manic gear changing.

How does this sound?

Sorry if I've posted this in the wrong section.
