I rarely fly it with a full fuel load especially if I'm doing a short to medium flight (600-2000 miles). I generally use flaps 10 or 15. Turn on Flight director and auto-throttle, select TO/GA button on the throttle quadrant. Once engines have stablized, I release brakes and rotate at 160 knots indicated.
