Launch control

by dhancock14 » May 16th, 2018, 8:00 am

So I've been using Versatuner for a bit now, and I was hoping the launch control would be more responsive like the actual rev limiter. Not saying that it's not serving it's primary purpose well, but I like the quick bouncing and exhaust popping with flames of the rev limiter. I read somewhere on here that the launch control is supposed to be a rev limiter set at the rpm, but on the RX8 it doesn't seem like that's so. It seems like it's just a fuel cut for about 1 second which is pretty boring. Can that be changed?

Launch control on RX-8 is based on factory rev limiter, too. It might just work differently at lower RPMs.
If we have enough resources, we might extend launch control to use more aggressive fuel cut in the future.
