I'm not so sure about 4x4 launch without sleeves, and cognito braces would be good too. I'd stay in 2 wheel and boost enough to not blow the tires off on take off. If you do 4x4 launch, you leave it on the whole way, it won't disengage until you let off anyway.
May i ask why you're doing a zf6 swap?

Edit: You don't have lift keys do you?

I plan on buying sleeves before the drag. I am doin the zf-6 swap because I love standards and I like to be unique. also it gives me somethin to do lol

Sleeves or hd tierods, drop your torsion bars, put er in 4high, boost to about 10-15 psi or whatever is barely less than enough to blow all four off and let er rip!

Dude the Allison is the best transmission in the world, do not put a manual in that truck! If you are going to do that just go get a dodge with a manual and put a 55 gallon drum in the bed for a stack, that would be different but dont take out the Allison out :snapp

I ran with no sleeves and 35s 100s of 1/8th mile passes at 500+ rwhp

I wouldnt reccomend it but I did it... There are guys on there that have seen it in action lol

They finally broke by the way... haha

so are you going to have the swap done before the race?

What are some launching techniques? Drop the bars, lower tire pressure, boost it up to 10-15 psi and hold on.
When or do I kick it out of 4hi? Never. You can push the button or bump the lever but it wont come out until you lift to 0% throttle.

A lift pump would help you alot. And I wouldn't swap for a ZF6 if you plan on racing it. It WILL be slower than if you had a built Allison.

No need for rowing. Build the alli! You can just buy the Fleece tapshift if you want to shift gears. And pretend to use a clutch. :D
