This doesn't work on my SEL, so I'm guessing its i.a. only.

Just an addition, don't know if it has been covered or not, but my Job 3 2012 SE with 403A has fold-flat rear seats (ala, the bottoms fold forward).

Job 2, there was no Job 3 in the 2012 MY, as well as 203A not 403A.

401A was the Ti with premium package, there was no 403A.

For the people who DO NOT want to go through nearly 60 pages of good tips and tricks

Factory launch control. Not just pressing gas and brake and having it go, an actual launch system. Which works. And on occasion will blip the tires.

This is me going at it, apologize for the uselessness and not going THAT fast, just wanted to give an idea. This works whether you are in select shift or just S, with or without TC.

Thats not launch control. Thats built into the car to keep idiots from over revving the motor. They don't put launch control in 160hp commuter cars.

Launch Control is turning off the T/C and knowing how to USE A CLUTCH and Launching.

As you can see, my TC was indeed off.

I don't need to learn how to use a clutch cause my computer does it for me, cause DCT.

I'd get off your lawn but you'll be going senile soon enough so why bother?

Tis the future. Deal with it.

I'd sigh, but that seems pointless.

The safety feature you are talking about kicks in at around 1k RPM, not 2700.

2700 which is the sweet spot for dumping the clutch in such a small engined car anyways.
