I think you have it backwards. An auto will have the off-line advantage as
you can sit and spool it up and let'r go. I would guess Joe uses the N2O
mostly for the extra HP (note his mph), and not just for holeshots. As far
as I know, he does use it to help spool up at the line, but only runs
around 16-17 psi of boost down the track.
