Ok so I ran a 13.44 at the strip this weekend with a really slow reaction of .488. Anyways I didn't think of starting off in third until afterwards. Do you guys start off in drive or 3rd at the strip? I was thinkin third would be alot quicker since less shifting... What Yu think?

Stock rear 3.73 I believe and built 1600 stall trans..

What is wrong with second?
I do the burnout in 1st and then shift to drive.
My trans tune starts in second as first is way to low of a gear.
I cut .0xx lights all day and run a 1.8 60 foot.

I agree 2nd is fine for a burnout/launch, but he stated using 3rd gear, no mention of 2nd. IMO starting in 3rd would not produce good track times, not enough power to get out of the hole.
3rd gear for truck pulling

Terrible gear for the strip for sure
