Well to start with I believe he has a 2 wheel drive.
So stalling it up in 4 wheel drive might be a problem.
Also when you stall it up you will get timing being pulled.
Since he has a 2600 stall 4:10 gears I dont see how he is going to leave off the line without spinning,so thats why I suggested drag radials.
A baseline is no good if you cant get traction.
Putting the tow haul button on will lock up the converter sooner,so that always a good idea,and will go though all the gears correctly.
I quess if you want to be serious about racing on street tires,dont do a burnout in the water,drive past it and then heat them up.
You wont have water dripping down onto the tires when you stage.
Hope that helps a bit.
Not trying to be a smartass I am just trying to help the guy out.
Maybe you should do the same.
