But is it also bad for an MTX to start revving the RPMs too soon too? Like, say the MTX guy pulls up to the staging area, gets set, and starts revving like 8 seconds before the green light, is that just as bad for it as it would be for the ATX driver?

What if you do it too low? I think my goal will be to get the RPMs right around 1,500-2k for launch.
Your car is going to bog down regardless of the rpm unfornutely but more so with lower rpm.

I'm having Andre @ Edge Racing Converters build a 3500rpm stall converter for my car. Traction won't be an issues on some 13x8 boggarts with 23x8.5" M&H D.O.T Street Slcks. If I could have him build a 4000rpm stall that wouldn't be too loose up top I would but seems 3500rpm is the limit on the motor mods I have right now.
