Clutch in, rpm to whatever you want, hand brake up.
*1st amber start to slip clutch
*2nd amber slip more, you should feel "tension" at this point.
*Third amber lights up, drop clutch, dump gas, drop e brake.
The half a second it takes you to fully release the E brake should help transfer some of the weight TO your torque converter and splines rather than your front tires and the pavment.

If you get your tires hot enough during the burn out then you should launch. Do you skip the burn out? Use the water?

Give me a run down of what you do.

For the record I was saying my 60ft in a MTX would be just as good if not better than in my ATX now. I think the MTX's are more much more capable of launching at a higher RPM. Your never gonna get a perfect launch = no wheel spin or hop because you aren't running drag radials IMO.
