Launch control

as title suggests lads,

would like to know more about launch control.

or somthing similar, like 2 step,

Is there a product that you can turn on with a switch, as you would only need it on occasions, and reloading a tune takes the best part of 5 mins

Um not sure if it will get in the way of Toms tune. It doesn't tie into the ECU itself. It a by pass that takes limits your RPM. I can't really think of anyway it would interfere with his tune. Unless my brain isn't working right now lol. It controls the signal limiting your revs guessing it tell your ecu that everything is running fine or issues would occur.

You tie in to your ingition lead to you coils to control everything there it isn't a update or a flasher. It is a box you add to the car yourself that controls it.

Im thinking of giving it a try and just leading stuff with a quick cramper. Worse case I need to place some eletrical tape on a wire or two. I much rather invest into a addon then the stock ECU using a two step. Even the Evo guys rather have a addon then flashing ECU. If it works like they say it does. This is probably one of the cheapest mods you can do to lower any ET times. Everyone knows driver mod is the best but shit, it makes you better without trying =P I still wouldn't touch flat foot shifting with out trannys being how they are....
