Your going to want to do it just as you would with any tunes...
You'll want to be in 4 hi.. MAke sure you engage 4hi before you get to the line.. Usually what i'll do.. Is I'll have a few mph roll going, 2-3mph.. slip into neutral, click into 4hi, then back to drive... (Rolling helps the t-case smoothly engage).. That way when you line up you know your engaged..
Before you line up, watch a few runs, so you can get used to the lights, the speed of the drop.. and how the lights light up as you pull up to the line...
Here at our local track.. You've got a light that lets you know your almost at the line.. Then you creep up just a little more.. and your at the line and the lights begin to drop..
You will want to pull up to when that first light comes on.. and then hold your brakes and slowly start building your boost (Something you need to practice before you get to the track) Don't try and just floor it to get your boost up.. That does you know good.. Should take you 5-7 seconds to get your boost up to where your planning on launching at... Then just ease of the brakes ever so slightly to creep forward, without loosing your boost (Something you should also practice, because you'll only need to move 3" inches or so.. you don't want to let them off to much and red light) once you creep forward and the light drops, Let go of the brake and get the skinny pedal to the floor and hang on tight. Look straight forward, don't look at your gauges.. use your peripherals to see your gauges.. You want to focus on making sure your going straight down the track.. Its easy to let the truck drift off the launch and next thing you know you'll be in the wall.
One thing i've noticed with my truck is that it reacts better to me not smashing the pedal down off the launch, but to rather ease it to the floor.. You don't wanna mash it and just over-fuel.... I've found a relative good speed of getting it to the floor is better for my truck.. But yours may be different.. who knows..
Uhhh... Wait... What...
