PARKINGLOT actually, it's better to just hold the brake, then on the last yellow, let off the brake and mash the gas....

it's acutally better than loading the torque converter before hand, by holding the brakes and gas....

try a run both ways, see which works better for you...

svtguy88, not neutral drops.....the only thing that would be worse would be reverse drops.....I was talking about drag launching an ATX. lol

jaykirs ^^^ It is EXTREMELY hard on the tranny!!!! And on the engine mounts and the axels and the CV joints and the torque converter ..... it can easily destroy your tranny, I highly recommend NOT doing neutral drops! lol

svtguy88 Hey, not to steal a thread or anything, but how bad is this for the ATX?

jaykirs Place tranny in neutral, floor the gas pedal, then slap it into gear when the light turns green ...... that is NOT the way you want to launch LOL ..... the method listed above is about as good as your going to be able to do unless you get a stall converter and a trans brake.

That's the way I do it. Works good for me.

P0WeRbyDuratec lol its that simple. but something like a sct tune from focussport will adjust your shift points. It is a huge improvement by the way

Carrera26 All I know is that you should definitely not do any neutral drops. Perhaps you already knew that, but I always want to mention it.
