how do you pull

Hey i have a 99.5 ford super duty with 7.3 power stroke in it. I was thinking about going to a sled pull. I have the stock auto transmission the 4r100. I know to put it in 4 low and then what. Do you put the shifter into 1st then shift to second and leave it in second or shift it into drive which would be 3rd. if you keep it in second do you leave it in second till the sled stops or do you shift it back down into first when you start to slow down becuase of the wieght. and what do i sett my chip at 60 tow 80 or 120 thanks.

Weight to the front, not the back, you want to loose as much weight from the back as you can...

You can mess something up going WOT down the highway.

I guess pulling could really accelerate breaking something vs. never pulling?
