When you first take off, typically you are not under boost yet. Usually the turbo has to spool up first before the extra acceleration like 4000 RPM. I learned how to drive on a '87 without a turbo and I found the clutch is a little snappy if you let it out to fast. Also the clutch has a large throw. Practice on the clutch movement.

When the tires get wet on my 88' non turbo they still spin if i let the clutch out too fast so when its raining i drive slower.. and usually i dont have a problem
