Best launch technique? Launch control button is pretty weak
So I've been playing around a little with different launch techniques - off idle, holding the break and loading up the motor a little, and of course the launch control button.
What I find interesting is that the launch control option actually produces the least aggressive launch, at least according to my butt meter. The most jarring launches have been off idle, in manual flappy paddle mode. I actually just a few minutes ago launched off idle, sport mode with the flappy paddles on and the car actually chirped the tires just a tad.
Any tips on the best method? And does anyone else agree that the launch control mode isn't all its cracked up to be?
