When I race I manually shift. My truck has what I call a soft spot when shifting from third to fourth if I just leave it in drive so I hold third to around 5500 then up shift with the slight hesitation it actually shifts into 4th around 6000 rpms.

I generally manually shift until the race starts, then I upshift 2-3 gears right away to let the computer do it's thing. I only use the manual shift to remove any hesitation from the it from a stop; a 30 roll; or whatever. I also (usually) hit the ESP button to remove as much traction control as possible when the road is good.

Do u guys load uP the converter before u launch or go from idle?

no load..just hit it from idle..if you stall it up torque management takes over and pulls timing (and power)
