Ok, just got my new LBZ about 2 weeks ago. I am headed to the Dallas area to visit family this weekend. My brother in law has an 05 Tahoe Z71. It has the 5.3 I know he gonna try to race me (he always does) so I figure I might as well be prepared. I want him to see what the DMAX is made of. I can spin the tires from a stop if I punch it. So, the other night I thought I would try a boosted launch to see if it really took off. I brought it to 1200 RPM as my light was about to turn green. Once it turned green I let off the brake and pushed the skinny pedal to the floor. I just spun the tires up to about 45mph and had the truck sliding side to side for about 40 feet. I finally just backed out of it because it seemed like the tires weren't going to grab. So, I am trying to get some advice on the best way to launch. I don't want to lose just because I don't have much experience with it yet and just roast the tires. Maybe I am best of not boosting it and just hammer it when the light goes green. Any help would be great. I want to come home with a good kill so he can stop giving me crap about why buy a diesel. I want him to experience it first hand.
