Thats not good. If all else fails you can do a boosted 2wd launch and smoke the rear tires

No need for burnout unless you get the tires wet driving into the lanes. If so clean the rear tires off in 2wd. Put it in 4wd Hi. First Stage, start building boost, let off the brake and 2nd stage build the rest of your boost and leave on the last yellow. Be sure to take it out of 4wd before turning off the end of the track.

Drive around the water box, line yourself up, put it in 4 high, prestage and STOP. let the other vehicle go in 1st if possible, build 15-18lbs of boost, ease into stage, leave on the last yellow.

I altered your post just a touch.

I slide it out of 4x4 as I am going down the track, you don't have to, that's just the way I do it.

From what i understand, it doesnt come out of 4wd until you let off the throttle and coast for a sec. am i wrong?

thats what i thought...there was a guy on the forum a while ago claiming that he would take it out of 4wd 1/2 track and finish in "2wd"...and when he did this, he saw consistently better times??
