    Not sure if you knew this LM, but you can change the RPM of the launch on our cars using the cruise control stalk - I think it's in increments of 100 RPM, but don't quote me on that. I do know it's adjustable, that I am sure of.

    It is adjustable up or down and it is with the cruise control stalk.

    Pretty sure its only between 4500 and 5500 i thought, an even then its one or the other.. I heard rumors of 100rpm increments, but ive never tried to play with it- thought that was after s/w updates

    Yep - you are right:
    Do not use Launch Control too often, as the higher loads on the vehicle lead to premature component wear.

    Launch Control is available when the engine is at operating temperature, i.e. after driving con- tinuously for approx. 6 miles/10 km.

    1. Press the brake while the engine is running. 2. Deactivate Dynamic Stability Control DSC,
    refer to page 39.
    3. Select sequential mode with Drivelogic
    drive program 6.
    4. With the vehicle stationary, press the selec- tor lever forward and hold. A flag symbol appears in the instrument cluster.
    5. Press the accelerator down all the way. The engine speed when driving off is controlled.
    6. If you wish, you can adjust the drive-off engine speed by up to approx. 500 rpm: Increase the drive-off engine speed by approx. 100 rpm: press the lever beyond the resistance point, arrow 1. Decrease the drive-off engine speed by approx. 100 rpm: pull the lever beyond the resistance point, arrow 2. Reset the drive-off engine speed: press the lever upward or downward, arrows 3.

    So - sounds like you can adjust for a total of 500 RPM (not much when all things considered) at 100 RPM increments...

    ok, so its a total of 500 rpm, from 5000-5500, and in 100 rpm increments. I knew it was only available to go lower after updates.. but thats cause I actually have and drive my car, so im more familiar with them than someone that doesnt/hasnt Click here to enlarge

    Once your on sticky tire and prepped track, i dont see any issue with 5500rpm, hell i did 11.3 with the old kit.. and that was 80hp less than Evolved Click here to enlarge

    It's slow to adjust, LC is only activated for approx 5 seconds of revving before it calls it quits. I don't understand the "reset drive-off speed" portion of the stalk, I can't see where that would ever be useful, it reverts back to the OEM default after each LC use.

    Haven't ever had it call quits after 5 seconds on me and the stalk is incredibly useful on the strip.

    What kind of RWHP does it take to run that 10.89 @ 127.88?

    Last year in December -- 1SickM ran a 10.65 @ 131.79 at Atco in his DCT E92. Mods were an ESS-VT2 625, Nitto NT555 DRs, Gintani X-Pipe, Borla Rear Section, AR Line Lock, 93/100 Blend.


    An E92 DCT with the ESS-VT2 650/Full Exhaust also sent the E9x M3 trap record at 132.10 the same day, same track.

    Smashing gas just like that on a DCT car before the clutch is fully engaged causes more heat leading to more slippage = more damage. The factory method of LC are more injurious to the DCT than a help

    He did not use "factory LC", that car was revved to about 3.5k-4.5k RPMs, and on decline of the RPMs the clutch engaged. This is different from the factory LC which just dumps the clutch at a "static" RPM range. It was LC just used in a different way which allows modulation.

    .LC heats it more due to slipping, the smash and go is less total heat but will have hot/burnt spots... dozens of rebuilt/worked trans would suggest that a stock dct isnt taking abuse that like that for long

    So 10's are not impressive? Does someone need to swap a 6 speed into a GTR for it to be impressive?

    Btw, 10's are very impressive. I don't think people realize how hard it is and how much money it costs to have a reliable, repeatable, 10 sec 1/4 street car.
