1/4 Mile, Drag Racing, 4wd Question

I am wondering what everyone does when launching. At the 1/4 for instance. Boost-Launch in 4WD. But what happens after? Keep it in 4wd down the whole track OR switch it to 2wd? I just dont know what is best? I just cant see how it can be safe to switch from 4wd to 2wd @ WOT with 1,100#'s of TQ or Keeping it in 4wd up to 80-90mph. Thanks for any help.

It doesn't matter if you switch back to 2wd or leave it in 4wd its not going to unlock until you let out of it.

Running in 4wd on hard surfaces isn't really good for things anyway, but as long as you keep the wheels straight, there's really not problem with the front end going fast. Have you ever forgotten to unlock hubs before going on the highway? Just slow down and put it in 2hi before turning onto the return road.

You'll be to busy watching gauges and staying straight to worry about turning the 4WD knob. If you can even reach the dash with all the torque throwing you back in the seat.
