    Default launch control

    hey, is there a way to get "launch control" with the 5sp? like with the bmw m3's. u enable launch control, hold the gear up leaver, rev to whatever you want, then release the lever? i guess its almost like a computer clutch.

    was just thinking, so any ideas?

    cheers

    How much money do you have budgeted for this exercise ? Perhaps you were the sole winner of $20,000,000.00 on Wednesday night !!

    BMW has a real clutch. It isn't an auto with flappy paddles like your Commodore. There is no launch control.

    It does have flappy paddles but its not a conventional auto
