Default Slip it or Dump it? M6 guys chime in!

After blowing up my old 10 bolt a few weeks ago I now have a Moser 9 on the way from EPP. My question is launching the car now that I actually can. In the past I always had to "baby" the old 10 bolt on my launches which would only net around a 1.85-1.90 60ft. I am ready to get on down with the 1.60 boys and girls so I can actually see what my car will do in the 1/4 mile. In the past I would always preload the 10 bolt until I felt the car barely move then I would launch the car so at least the drivetrain would have some pressure on all components. Now that I have the Moser 9 with the PST 3.5 DS I want to know the best way to launch the car for the best 1/4 times.
Quick Run Down - roughly 400rwhp street car, MT ET Streets, LS7 clutch kit, LCAs, PHB, SFCs, Adj TA, Moser 9.
Thanks!

Releasing the clutch just enough to roll and take the slack out of the drivetrain so its not such a sudden shock on all of the driveline components.

We have very similar setups and I was dumping the clutch at around 4800 until I gernaded the Tru Trac in my 9". My LS7 clutch was also starting to slip at the track. My car has a spool and 35 spline axles now and I plan on swapping out the LS7 clutch for a Mcleod twin disk over the winter and dumping it at 5000-5500 next year. BTW my best E.T. and 60' with the LS7 clutch and Tru Trac posi are in my sig.

ok. MAYBE slightly preloading the drivetrain. suspension would be a different story.

A set of Bias Ply, and properly set up rear suspension and go off the limiter. I pulled a wheel with ease.

Thanks for the replies, I feel I'm really going to have to drive it like I stole it to bust 11s na. So far it seems that the vote goes to Dump It! Any other suggestions on the launch?

When I had my 6 speed I dumped the clutch about 3800 to 4000 and let off the gas and used the clutch on every shift. I wasn't about to blow a tranny to knock a tenth of a second off. My best 60' was a 1.53.
