Yeah, engine noise runs behind the bike, not in front of it, so they hear that too late.
If you want to be heard as a warning, at the light, pull up where they can see you. Up far in front of the other cars. They will see you, and you should always be first off the light anyway. The cars expect that from you, they wait for you to go first.
Or, for a warning, flash the brights, or get one of these super horns, Steben? like a semi truck horn. BEEEEP. Then they see you.
