So I woke up this morning to my base tune in my email. I thought it was pretty cool to see that Justin messes around with tuning on the weekends because I wasn't expecting the map until sometime today or tomorrow. I loaded it up before work because #racecart.

Wow.

Launch control is set at 4k and FFS at 5k, and coupled with the additional power this car just flipping rips.

Yeah, here in a few days I'll be getting fuel again and I anticipate that number to be down a couple notches, lol. Shifting without lifting is incredibly addictive...

Just curious...How does launch control work when you have a clutch?

With traction control off, car stopped, and clutch depressed, you hold the cruise control 'on' button and give 90%+ throttle input. When you're ready to launch you let go of the 'on' button and drop the clutch. I'll have to get a video one of these days, but you can search Cobb LC and you should be able to find the videos on their site.

Launch control has become so good they have banned it in some classes at the dragstrip. My STI has it but I've rarely used it.
