Tell meabout launch control i think it is as follows (What I understand is launch control is activated by turing all the controls to r (snow, vdc, track) and then flooring the gas and keeping your foot on the brake. The computer lets the car hold at 4800rmp. Then you let off the brake to launch. Are people saying the computer will not allow the r mode or not allow the engine to hold at 4800rpm. sorry for the dumb ass question.. well it is for some..
Not 100% sure but I think all to R mode expect the VDC switched off in order to use LC
