N/A Boss guys, what's your launch technique at the strip?

Curious as my 11 GT probably behaves similar to a Boss car. Ran at the track last Friday, and while I'm thrilled with my ET/mph.... my 60 is not where I'd like it.

Stock longblock, GT350 manifold, JLT intake, headers, no cats, 3.73 mt82, minor weight reduction. On ET street R bias.

I haven’t drag raced mine in years, but I did run a 11.82 at 116 w/ 1.72 60ft completely stock on 17” MT drag radials. My technique was to hold it at 3000 rpm at the line.. as you are about to begin releasing the clutch bring rpms up to maybe 4K as you are releasing the clutch. So the rpms are swinging up as you are releasing the clutch. I did also have a 1.68 60ft... it surly would have put me in the 11.7X.. but I was blocked out on the 1-2 shift...
I honestly made maybe 12 total passes on the car. I was shooting for 11.7 stock, but I was pretty happy with the 11.82.
