hello everyone , long time since my last post here, busy with collage actually , anyway lets get to the point . we have a local drag race competition around the corner now and I would like to join it for the first time . my car is a 2003 mustang GT V8 AUTOMATIC tranny . with the following mods msd coils crank pully air intake new ford racing pi intake headers and mufflers and diablo tune the major thing here, is when I try accelerating on the road behind my home , it's about the half mile long and no other cars around me , so dont worry haha I tried the following starts 1-foot on break and once released slam the gas 2-reving on neutral and engage the gear about 1500 and 2000 and 2500 rpm both with and without the O/D what happened is the car will stall for a second or two then kick down if I did the first thing the car will kick hard sometimes would keep going fast most of the times would stall and **** to second on low speed so I lose all my power if I did the second one . now what I am asking is I am sure that some of you drag an auto before, what is the best way to do it. also what would be a good thing or mod to do to get better timeing and better lunch. I have read about a built automatic tranny , but could not find any useful info about that.
