I have run a stick for many years. Can those who are running their autos please give me some advice on racing our 392's?

How do you launch?
Do you shift manually or leav in 1 and let the computer shift for you.
If you shift manually, at what RPM?

Thanks all

Use the auto stick and leave it in first as it feels like less timing is being retarded than leaving it in drive and my times at the track proved that. Trying it both ways the car was .4 quicker in auto stick mode.

Do not break rev at the line as the computer will sense this and retard timing slowing your 60ft time. Let the stock stall converter do its job. once the car sees over 1900 rpm ( i believe that is the number) on a break rev timing retard will occur.

That could be one reason it felt like a dog off the line. Good information
