Default TransBrake vs Footbrake

I have a 3700lb car with a BB 427. I have a TransBrake in it, however it 60's better with the foot than the brake by .1 to .15. It's a 5700 stall, I have it set at 3500 rpm for launch and it releases at 4000. Am I off base with this thinking? I have a stock driveshaft with good joints. A good launch on the foot is 1.42-43, best ever with brake is 1.55. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

Sounds like it's spinning. Have you ever tried to launch it at a lower rpm?

I have not. I can only hold it till about 3-3200 on the foot before it pushes through. Are you thinking I should go around 2500 maybe?
