thanks again to all who's helped. typing this from my phone, excuse the errors.
im actually at my buddys putting the drag radials on now. soon as he gets here. he is hesitant to let me see em because of my pegleg, he's tellin me to rotate them every couple burnouts? bummer. but ill do just.
i dont feel my trans holds my car in gear long enough @wot in "D". so ill be trying both ways, and also the two different launches, off idle and off the 'verter. i HOPE not to break any of this 36 year old stuff lol

My best advice would be to leave from an idle. The converter will flash stall higher than stalling it against the brake and you'll be more consistent leaving the same way at the same rpm (idle) every time.
