Remove your spare tire, jack and optional, lower rear seat. Also remove the carpet/wood from your trunk. Make sure your OD is off. Do a quick spin of the tires to clean them, but do not do a burn out. Set your front tires to max psi (there is usually air at the track) and set your rears to 28psi, you can dial it down to 25psi if you are need too.

Then, power brake to 1500, on the next pass, power brake to 1600, etc in increments of 100 rpm until you find the max RPM you can launch at without tire spin. Also, when staging to the tree, pump your brakes like crazy. This will get your brake pressure up and allow you to power brake the car at a higher rpm.

Good luck.
this might sound dumb. but what will turning your OD do? ive never really looked into that before/

I dont think turning the OD on or off will make a difference.

in my old car, when i'd be feeling really stupid, i'd try and drag race someone (97 altima by the way...still the old *** 4 bangers) i turned off my OD when i felt my AT shift into top gear, and it would give me a few more revs....one dude thought i had something to boost cuz it made the car jump.
