Total newbie to drag racing. With a C6, do you guys do a 1-2 burnout or a 2-3 burnout?

Not a C-6 but with my glide, I roll through the water and just hit it in high gear and bring it up to 5500 for 3-4 second depending on the track temp.

Start out in 2nd,then high. End the burnout easing out of the throttle. C6 doesn't seem to like the abrupt stop.

when I had my c6 I started out in 1st then as soon as the tires start spinning I shifted to 2nd have to be careful in 1st if you just smash it to the floor you might over rev it before you can hit second gear

It depends a bunch on your rear gear.

4.10 rear, 29.5x15 tire.

On my only pass so far, I did a 1 then almost immediately went to 2nd and had no problem turning what ever rpm I wanted

Have you tried using high gear only? I've never needed any lower gears, and the tire comes up to speed quicker. For me, easier on parts, too.

Hardly say you are a newby Lol... Also consider the slicks you are running, you want to be easy on the parts but you also want to be consistent in how you burnout when you find what the truck, tire, and parts are happy with that you can replicate you will have what works for you and your ride. Do not soak your wheel wells roll through the water burnout after you don't need water dripping on your tires at the line or at half track.Start with a short burnout ease out of it, and watch your 60' times closely when you change how you do the burnout be aware of the change you made, it doesn't matter if you do the perfect burnout if you don't know how to replicate it.

a Ford C6 built properly and with a valve body that works properly will last in a 3000 lb car 300-400 passes provided trans temps are kept in check , rollerizing gets the power lose through the trans the same as a PG or less but with 3 gears but there is a penalty as to it's weight

I have 2 full roller C6's. The first one I built with a kit from Broader and additional mods that you provided through your posts. This one has a TCI reverse brake vb (got through a trade and all I could afford at the time). Armed with more knowledge, the second was built strictly from the information in your posts and clutch packs/steels picked up from a trans shop here in town that does racing trannys and a broader reverse brake vb. both are built to handle everything that my motors can put out.
