So took the car to the track for the first time this weekend. Managed to get 11.8 at 120mph with a 1.9 60. Couldn't for the life of me figure how to use the launch control. Had it in V mode, set PTM on sports, Race 1 and Race 2, couldn't figure out how to initiate it. Tried playing around with it in automatic and custom, left it in the default since I just wanted to see what it would first, but had no luck. Am I supposed to line up, hold the brake like im initiating line lock, then rev it and dump the clutch?

Tried leaving it on auto and tried to set it to the custom setting (iirc it was 2800 rpm and 5% slip?). Im just trying to figure out what the actual steps are to actually trigger it on a manual.

If you are in ptm race 1 or 2 it's automatic. Push the clutch in, in first gear and put the throttle to the floor. You don't have to be on the screen or push any buttons.

Here's mine. Ct4, 6speed. Stock tires. Track was cold and there wasn't much traction.

So set it to PTM race 1 or 2, leave it in gear and the RPM should stay where its set at without having to do anything else to initialize it? I guess i was just worried the car might roll off the line and the reason I kept my foot on the brake. I was trying to heel toe it and it was revving pass the rpm setting for the LC.

Set it to %15 and work your way down. I just leave it at 15.

Any chance you could share your time slip?

Don’t laugh…🤣
Not a chance. That's a solid starting point!

What was the date and clock time on this slip? Which transmission do you have? And what is the name of the track?

This was on 29 OCT, 8pm at Brandenton Motorsports Park. Manual and no launch control on stock wheels.
