I get my best 60 foot and reaction time doing this. I let off the brake and hit the gas on the last yellow.

Loading the converter slows my car down. Don't know why.
Exactly. Allowing the rpms to flash up quickly by stomping the accelerator from idle, allows the converter to couple quicker.

So foot brake is the same thing as launching from idle?

No, footbraking is holding brake and bringing up rpms just under where car will push. In my experience, this will yield a slower 60ft and et vs just stomping the gas from idle.

My setup prefers loading to 1500 on the brake. .15 better 60' than off idle. Assuming it depends on how the converter flashes, and how much the car inches forward for the first 6-12" when you let off the brake and smash.

Were talking stock converter and NA, looks like you have a 2c and a PD blower.

Did you check OP's combo?
I'm also going to say, I'm sure the timing of letting off the brake and applying throttle could vary person to person and potentially effect that first 1 foot rollout more than the combo itself....

Your looser than stock converter and triple the HP of the OP would Def have an effect on what works for you and what works for him.

My best 60s have resulted from ~1200 rpm launches. Launching from idle results in slower 60s for me. I'm also N/A on a 6r80 with 3.15s.
