    You need a high stall converter to get you into your powerband sooner.

    What about stock guys? How high should I go? I've been taking off at 1100 rpms, can I go higher or is that good?

    Go until the back end stands up... thats pretty much just before the wheels break loose...

    It varies per car.. just try a few things out and see what your specific car likes.

    Automatics do not 'bog'.

    To get into the powerband quicker, a properly-chosen torque converter will do wonders.

    Launching....with the proper converter, some sticky tires, and assuming you have no trans brake (most street cars don't), you'll get the most torque to the wheels the quickest by letting the converter 'flash' to near its stall speed. This is accomplished by being staged at idle, and when you're ready to go, simply going hard to full throttle. This applies the greatest amount of resistance to the torque converter, allowing it to spin higher initially, increasing the amount of torque to the wheels.

    The downside of this is if you don't have adequate traction. At that point, "loading" the converter might help, as you won't hit the tires as hard (loading the converter means holding the brake while raising the rpm with the throttle).

    I've found with my 3400 stall, about 1300-1500 rpm powerbraking is perfect for a great launch on street tires
