optimal launching RPM

hey I just discovered the SCT X3 feature that lets you limit the RPM while the clutch is pushed in, is there an optimal RPM to launch at that wont spin the tires too hard but also wont bog the engine down? I have it set at 2700 RPM right now but that seems a bit harsh, I don't have posi yet. I know the terrain makes a difference depending on dirt on the road and whatnot but if anyone knows the rule of thumb for the 4.0 launching RPM then please do tell.

Re: optimal launching RPM

there are to many factors to say XXXX rpm is perfect, tires, pavement, temperature, etc all change it.
