MSD 2 step launch controller PN8733 NEED HELP PLEASE

hey i have a question.. I have a 2012 camaro with the ls3 and i just got the PN 8733 msd 2 step launch controller.. i have it installed but am having trouble trying to figure out what wire to hook the activator wire to the clutch switch. the clutch switch has 3 wires but im having problems figuring out witch one i need to use and is 12V or ground when i push it in.. it tried just putting it to ground so it would always be on but it only lets the car go to the 3,000 RPM that i set while im driving too so it cant work that way.. just thought u might be able to help me.. its greatly appreciated

I have mine run to ground with a momentary switch. Set your RPM, then hold the switch to activate, bring your RPM up... release it and away you go.

If the track is really hooking I set mine @ 2K. I have tons low end power so anymore RPM's and I'll blow the tires off.
