best way for 1/4 mile

What is the best way to get the best time on a quatermile without putting it in 4 wheel drive. I know boosted launch wont work because I have an SCT looney and all it will do is spin. So what is the best way to get a good quater mile run

no way bud! I've run my 4wd over 115 mph and it don't do a thing. Especially on our rigs, I have an 06 as well. The 4x4 is really strong
I've tracked my rig atleast 20 times with STRONG 4wd launches and the truck shifts better now than the day I bought it. Don't worry ONE bit about the 4wd, it's there so use it bro! It's the best way to get these trucks to hook, otherwise it won't. Wait till you start spinning tire in 4 wheel, than come on back and ask about that

if you have an awning on your Ventnor house... i may do it
I live in Linwood

Yes- turn the 4wd on, roll up to the tree, boost, run, and the whole run leave it on. The 4wd won't turn off until there is no load, so, you aren't letting off for the next 1320' so you'll be in 4wd whether it's on or off according to the shift on the fly. And you can turn it OFF at any speed, turning it on can only be done up to 35mph I believe. I always turn my on at a roll of 5mph or less.

Alright thanks alot for letting me know that I can do a 4wheel launch. No awning but maybe we can meet up one day or something so I can see your truck with new turbo and injectors.
