    I tried power braking at a little higher RPM last night and overpowered my brakes into a red light. I checked my datalog and I was at 3000 rpm. It didn't feel that high! I had a 3.5 60' as a result but still beat the Mustang GT next to me :-)

    I leave the line at 2800 rpm.

    I can only push the front tires forward on HOT drag radials, otherwise I'm just doing a brakestand.

    the 3 LX's with DR's I've run have ALL wanted the "stall until you move or spin" trick for the best 60's. that does NOT mean WOT as quickly as you can go. it still is an aggressive "roll into" it.

    the 2 that I've run with stock tires want "get the damn thing OFF idle, but roll easy into throttle once you are moving"

    Its funny how even with cars that should be running near identical that you get different results and also how mods affect those. So anyways, you guys can enjoy your 392s, 426s, 5.7s, etc... but us 6ers have a hard enough time getting into the low 2s for a 60ft.

    Up until recently I always had the best launches with ESP off via predator (obviously) and doing a dummy launch (mash the throttle at end of 2nd amber, beginning of 3rd). When I would hold the car at stall (any RPM, 1500, 2000, etc) it would fall flat on its face off the line and bog bad but would eventually catch up. Regardless, the car would always want to push forward hard anything above 1800RPM anyways. Well, Nathan (BritishNate) always got the opposite results and the car would always do best with a break stand stalled to about 1500.

    Recently now that I have ported and polished my throttle body and lower manifold it seems to just want to GO regardless of whether I hold it against the converter or if I just mash the throttle. It launches real hard if I break stand to about 1400 and roll into the throttle harder as I lift off the brakes (like Erik says). I am going to Speedworld saturday so lets see what a fresh tune for the cams and some porting.polishing did for the car.

    The stall isn't as big an issue as learning ti (Ride) the throttle out of the hole......if you hammer it after stalling it up your done!You need to ride the throttle and maintain your stalled rpm until the car is moving well then apply throttle......maintaining the same 3000rpm you stalled with for the first few feet out of the hole without letting the rpm's drop is the trick.

    When stalling should I just watch my tac and not worry about the tree or should I watch the tree and just stall till the car wants to move?

    To be honest I would get a feel for the cars stall in the driveway and get used to it.Feel what the car is doing so that by the time you get to the track a quick glance at the tac if anything is all you will need.Paying attention to the tree and feeling the car is the gaol for consistancy.

    Once it moves, you're done. You will break the beam & redlight.

    Would this vary any with an AWD? We dont have to worry about spinning, we do have to worry about breaking stuff but I would think with AWD you could be much more aggressive with the roll in after stalling it up... I stop short of saying hammer it though in my novice runs I have made I admit that is what I did.

    Hammer it......lol.....worked well on my AWD.Stalling will help take any slop out of the driveline to keep from shocking parts.Mine had a horrible bog if I tried just off idle,stalled it would just take off.
