Stock untuned first gear in full auto will shift at about 5200rpm, then 2nd will shift normally over 6000, maybe 6200.
When it shifts low in first it's making the most of the torque curve, however, it might be slightly early from my experiences. I need to do more testing, the weather just isn't good for grip right now.
I find it almost doesn't matter which mode you take off in, it's all pretty similar times. And whatever differences there are, could just be conditions, and driver inconsistencies. I've taken off with massive wheel spin sometimes, and then other times none at all. I've done great times with and without traction control light flashing. And not had any tire spin at all with traction controller 100% off.
Best piece of advice I can give, don't jump on the gas with the painted stop lines near, they are slippery and will cause tire spin almost every time, especially when cold and wet.
