does the V6 with standard come with launch control like the V8 does? Probably not.
Some V-6 cars have allegedly been released with the software active

Dont just ease it down and dont slow up on your decent...pop it down and hold it. Guess Gm figures you have to have balls if your going to try to race your car and this is their ultimate ball check.....lol Then you will see that the rpms stop around 4000. mine actually stopped at about 4200 or so to be accurate. Then once again dont try to baby the clutch. Drop it and hold the gas to the floor You have about 3 seconds to get ready to lift to shift then pop it back to the floor. I played with this for about ten launches on a friends training track. Perfect concrete with lights and a 60 ft timer. I would not try this on the street cause you will lose most of your rubber. I am a rookie driver and I will be the first to admit it. I will use launch control until my personal foot controlled launch times are consistantly better than what the computer is giving me. Ok so that was it for me in a nutshell. In summary, You have to have balls to activate launch control. If you dont the car is set up to self destruct making the world a safer place....
I'll have to try this in a week or too. I tried doing it twice and was a wus about it so that's probably why it didn't work

alrighty...



PROCEDURE FOR ENGAGING LAUNCH CONTROL FOUND ON MANUAL TRANS 2010 SS CAMARO'S.


1. be at a full dead stop, in neutral. feet off gas and off clutch.
2. press the traction control button twice, it'll switch to competition mode. then the little sign will go away and leave a small icon indicating your in comp mode.
3. gas to the floor. rpm will jump to 4.8k
4. clutch to the floor
5. shift into first
6. drop clutch out and hold on.




there you guys go. the majorative issue is that the gas needs to go down first, or the system doesn't turn on and you dont get the rev limit to 4800rpm.

happy launching!

has anyone tested if turning on Comp Mode while rolling is a problem, I have had this work right once and wrong three times, only thing I notice is that I was turing comp mode on while rollinginto the box.

Is this procedure true...i.e. does it have to be in neutral, then gas first? I tried doing it today just to show my dad how it held the RPM's, and it shot up to 7K before I caught it. I figured either I wasn't doing the right procedure (did clutch in then gas, while in gear), or I was pushing the gas pedal down too wuss-like (gently consistent). And yes, it was definitely in comp mode.

Wow, didn't know this thread got revived.

My only advice on why it wasn't working for me was because I was being a wuss about pushing down the gas pedal.

Stomp on that thing like it's your boss' head!
