Best Launch RPM

I'm thinking about taking my newly purchased SVT to the 1/8th mile drags tonight. What's the best launch RPM?

UNDERSTEER - When the front of your car hits the wall first.
OVERSTEER - when the back of your car hits the wall first.
HORSEPOWER - How hard you hit the wall.
TORQUE - How far you move the wall when you hit it.
