I do a small burnout if I can't avoid the water box, then click 4hi on, T/H mode, and turn OD off if its 1/8th mile. Roll in and light my pre-stage lights, bring it up on boost to about 15 psi, then creep into stage lights, as soon as I see the third amber I let off the brake and nail it. I run 30 psi front, 25 psi rear running Nitto highway terrains in 325/60R18.

I leave at about 30psi boost and tires are at 40 around the truck. I used to click it out of 4wd just after the 60', but now I have to drive the truck a little more, so I take it out once I finish so it's easier to turn off the track. If your doing boosted launches with a factory output it will last till right around 500hp and then it will snap

What gear do you guys take off in on the track with a 5 or 6 speed? I have a 5 speed and I rarely use first even when daily driving. We also have a 6 speed and im thinking of taking it to the track but i heard from someone that you can take off in third as quick as you can in 2nd on a 5 speed? Just wondering. Would try it but dads getting some head work done

i have only ran in the 1/8th i have tried a couple of different ways to launch. with an auto it will be easy to build boost for launch, with my 6 speed it is tricky and hard to get a consistant reaction time. i have launched in 3rd with my 6 speed but u have to build boost and have to drag the clutch to keep it from bogging. my best times came from no boost and 2500 rpm launch. i leave it is 4x4 all the way through the traps and it ran a best of 9.2

Does the 48re have problems with the input shafts? Is it the 4wd launches that does it or is 2wd just as hard on em?

Made consistent 14.2 passes launching in 2wd with 35" tires and I still spun one time. I have a built auto trans, but will the transfer case in these cummins trucks hold up with 4wd boost launches or at 100+MPH?

Don't worry about keeping it in 4WD, straight line for less than 20 seconds at a time ***** to the wall won't hurt it, high speed turns in 4WD are what cause "rapid disassemble." Just take it out of 4H and back into 2H when you pass the time boards because it's a royal pain trying to make that turn onto the return road with the front axle locked.
