My launch technique is kind of specific to my setup:
4WD (Auto Mode aka AWD) 4 Drag Radials, 3000 stall TC,

ESP off
Tow/Haul on
Put it in 2WD, for short burnout
Water box punch throttle, no brakes, let it roll out 1-2 seconds
(just to get a little heat on the rear tires, spin the dirt/dust off)

flip to 4 auto while approaching the start line
deep stage by just inching it over the line
light touch on the brake and rev to 800-1000rpm, just enough to take the slack out of the driveline.

Stab the throttle Hard in the middle of the second yellow usually gets me under .099 r/t.

Rear tires chirp, any more than 1 full revolution engages front drive shaft, front grabs and jumps off the line like a Jack Rabbit.
Front drive disengages once I'm rolling automatically. If the rear tires grab from launch, front drive shaft never engages.

Feels like the front end is coming off the ground
1.8 - 60 footer every time! regardless of track conditions/prep.




Pre-Launch Rake





Post Launch Squat
