Hello there,Don't forget to sign with your real name next time per forum rules. :( It's great to see so many 737 threads!You can set a higher thrust rate in the N1 page of the FMC. However, I don't think that would be of much help. Since you haven't mentioned any changes it's set to AUTO by default which is high enough. I think the main problem would be the takeoff weight. If you are fully loaded (fuel+load) then you might be unable to reach VR on a short runway. Unless your flight time is 4-5 hours you don't need full tanks, reduce your fuel according to your flight duration.One other "technique" that might help is to to takeoff with Flaps 15, enter this in the T.O page and you should notice a decrease in the V speeds.Best regards

Or even flap 25. Make sure you are not derating your thrust or assuming the temperatureJack

Make sure you hold the brakes on until the thrust is built up quite a bit. The parking brake can also be used but I think it does not allow the use of the TOGA button in which case you would advance the throttles on your own and perform other functions. Don't let the aircraft roll as soon as you TOGA or advance throttles because of the engine spool-up delay.As suggested I just use enough fuel to meet trip requirements including a reserve and alternate if weather demands.If density altitude is high you might have to limit cargo and passenger numbersMake sure you select in the correct direction the longest runway available which should be used for take-offs as a rule to allow aborts. Program this longest runway in the FMC after listening to ATIS to get direction. When you contact ATC ground ask for that runway if not assigned. Notice if you change departure runways from that selected initially in the FMC and reprogram the FMC the take-off V-Speeds need to be reset and you'll get a caution.Start pulling back on your stick or yoke when you expect Vr.
