Drag Strip Question

For those of you who frequent the track, do you run in tow haul or not. In my 06 I tried both ways at the track and my times showed very little difference. I purchased an 03 a while back and have been playing around with it. It seems quicker in tow haul. Our local track doesn't open until next weekend, but I will do some experimenting when it does. For the time being I was curious to hear how everyone else does it.

I do not use tow/haul. The transmission really behaves the same at WOT regardless of whether you have it in tow/haul or not. I would spend more time practicing your launch, and figuring out which tire pressure and rpm your truck launches best at.

Some performance tunes disable the tow/haul option.

Thanks for the responses guys. That would make sense as to why my 06 showed little difference in times. The 03 seeming quicker with tow/haul on could all be in my head.
