Best 0 to 60

Hi guys, I thought that might be a good place to ask, whats the best way to do the best 0 to 60 with our AT?
1- I've read some are brake boosting, to what RPM should we do it?
2- DTC on or off? Do it make a big difference?
3- some are launching in 2nd gear, isn't it too bad for our transmission?
4- I've read that the best is to shift at 6k RPM.
Any input would be greatly appreciated, I don't have much experience in launches.
My mods are DCI,JB4,new map 5 and 30/70 mix E85/93 if it matters.
Thanks

1 - 2-3K RPM
2 - Off
3 - 2nd Gear
4 - 6-6200rpm

Try brake boosting at different RPMs to see which hooks up the best.

Get an LSD and good tires and make sure the back of your head is resting against the the headrest. Then put it in 2nd gear, turn off DSC and then just mash the gas...on your way to some of these:
