I didnt know launch control was only available in modes 4 and 5. I was under the impression it was available in all modes? So modes 2 and 3 do not have LC?

I believe that Traction Control is used in all modes, but that Launch Control is only available in modes 4 and 5.

Per an inside "source".

The story is out on every major news network on tv, radio and the internet. I doubt that there are too many people who haven't heard the story by now.

If you get to around 1:45 or so, you can hear a slushbox leave the staging area. Those up-shifts sound almost as good as a nice, aggressive shift-kit!!! My hopes are really high for the auto-guys

One, Yes
Two, not so much.

My wife used to work dialysis. You don't want to go there.

The shift does sound much better than the current V6 & V8 shifts. But not as good as the older TH-400 with a B&M shift kit ...
