First day at the track....any last minute suggestions?

Hey everyone,
Tomorrow I am going to Milan Dragway with a couple of people for Test and Tune night. This will be my first night ever going to a real drag strip, and I was wondering if anyone could give me and last minute tips or suggestions, and maybe predict my 1/4 mile time. Here are my mods:
First off, I have an FD
Blitz intake
Pettit downpipe
stock cat
3" exhaust piping from cat back
3" muffler
Clutchmasters Stage I clutch
Removed the spare tire and sub/box from hatch

Anyone want to help me do the best I can? Anyone want to try to explain how to launch with little wheelspin? I have Nitto 450s right now. Should I rev to 3000 and feather the clutch on takeoff, or start lower and just dump the clutch in? Thanks for any help. I just don't want to embarrass myself.
Tyler

slip the clutch will be your best bet on street tires. you can try dumping but you might crack your PPF
