wondering what to do if I wanna race

I just wanted to ask one of u guys who has raced before. What wud b best to do to take off faster, should I drop n drive,push the plus bottom to 1 st, turn traction control off, n stomp it? Or put it on tow mode, where the eco light won't come on? Just wondering, cause there's a dude with a f-150 Harley d. addition talking crap all the time.He says my little goat won't beat em.That's what he calls it.

Tow mode in drive and ride or use the auto shift buttons and run each gear to 5900 and shift of the comp will let you.

Either way will work. If you have never raced the truck before run in drive tow on to get use to it

OK, I'll try it. I know that diablo i-1000 dcx really made a difference , but it's still got that hesitation when u stomp it. Thanks for the advice.

Just stab it from a dig don't power break it or try and load it up they tend to bog down

Wait a second, the dude talking crap has a Harley F-150 so I'm guessing it's supercharged. Last time I beat a Lightning he cried that I should take my drag radials off, so I said, "sure, if you take your blower off".
