Hey! Why isn't there anything for automatics!!! Heheheh...just messing....but actually...for us poor automatic peeps:

Automatic Transmission Tip: If you have power brakes, once you’ve staged, put the transmission in neutral and press HARD on the brake pedal. Rev the engine once, and quickly get off the throttle. The idea is to ‘snap’ the throttle plate shut. This will cause a manifold vacuum spike and you’ll feel the brake pedal sink further to the floor. This greatly increases the holding power of the brakes, and will allow you to rev the engine up higher against the torque converter and give you a harder launch. Just don’t forget to put the transmission back in gear!

Thank streetracing.com for that one..

:D :D :D Seems to give me a little more kick off of the line... my very first time at a drag strip my R/T was .899. Which isn't very bad considering it was my very first time. It will get better...hehe...
