Regular rocker switches force you to push and hold.

I use these for tabs. Drive trim is on throttle as are most.

Why not add a trim tab switch to your throttle? So you would have 2 switches on your throttle stick (drive and tabs). Easy to operate with your thumb.

You do what you need to do to keep you and your boat safe. Still, the OP needs to know he may be shortening his drive life.

drag boats have shafts, not outdrives. also, all the force accelerating the boat is on the propshaft, straight to the trans and to the motor mounts mounted to the stringers near the center mass. not trying to tear the transom off the boat...

These boats are not designed for hole shots. Go buy a jet boat or a jet ski for that. Your outdrive (especially gear floor) and drivetrain will thank you.

Trim tabs 2/3s of the way down helps planing. Then pull them up once on plane.
