no i have only driven autos so far.Then you haven't driven a manual FG Turbo. Every XR6 and XR50 Turbo manual has launch control. And how is lag still there? The car's peak torque is available from 1800rpm thanks to the turbo. When using launch control, the rpms are sitting, waiting (like Chuck Norris at night time, he doesn't sleep, he waits) for launch and the turbo is already spooled. Launch, and the 533Nm are there and being used! So what lag is there? PLEASE explain what you mean. Because I sure as hell don't understand.
there is a lag between when you engage the throttle and the engine is bosted up. because you have spooled the turbo by holding a load on the engine before you launch the car then there is little to no lag after launch as you are stating. but the turbo still has to spool up therfore lag but this is done before you set off. you cannot have a turbo without lag you can only manage the lag to an extent
