Default BFG DR, A4, launching advice?

I'm headed out to the track in the morning and wanted some advice for launching my SS with new BFG drag radials. I have a slightly modded A4 car with 3:23's. On my street tires the best launch I could do was to stall it up to around 12-1400 rpm and go. I live at a high altitude track as well.
Short burnout or long?
Waterbox or not?
Also what PSI (17" ZR1's) for the bfg's?
Thanks ahead of time.

14 psi if you cant hook. Burn em good until they hook, and stall as high as you can. Hard to hook on a 17" drag radial with no major suspension work
