They help until you hit bump stops.

Tonight will be the first time I pull with this truck and I am running stock trans tuning with built trans, precision converter factory precision stall. 45% over injectors danville stg2 65mm 3794 and a 10mm pump.

Any tips? Should I click the O/D button off on the line so the converter doesn't lock? I would rather not deal with violent shifts.

You will be against the stops the second you pull out

4low and put it in 3rd gear, if you're not running bump stops then make sure to keep your rear tire pressure up... "should" help with hopping.

Should I let it shift through 3rd before I feed it a foot full? My plan is to ease it on until the 100ft mark and then start throttling down and feel out the hopping.

No bump stops.

Your best chance at doing good is going as fast as you can in the first 150 ft. If you are not able to go 100% right away, fix the chassis or tires until you can.

Exactly. Ease the RPMs up as much as you can while holding the brakes before you cut it loose. Then floor that bitch until you stop moving.

If your scared don't hook to a sled in the first place.

That's exactly when you need them most. While they can help with squatting if clamped tight enough (not allowing the leaves to slide across each other), they are needed more for spring wrap (some tracks/sled make the condition worse). With no (or very short) stops, the spring is under tension from being compressed and helps resists (not stop) bending into an "S" (ie. spring wrap). When the weight of the truck is supported by the stops (to keep the ass-end from dragging), the spring is not compressed and is more easily effected by spring wrap. Yes traction bars are a much better solution but spring clamps help significantly when bars aren't allowed (some stock classes don't allow traction bars) or when on a tight budget.
