Install line lock on front tires, when you stage, hit brake pedal and hit button on line lock, this should hold car still, then you can work gas pedal and clutch separately,don't get in any hurry cause you got a second and a half till green comes on,when you dump clutch(on last yellow bulb), let off button.
Also I think you may be able to hold button down and still hit brake and it will hold. You can experiment on that.
Been many moons since I ran a four speed, on the strip, Glide w/transbrake is the way to go, less breakage.
