Launch Control Rocks!

I'm no drag racing pro, so I went out today to try and hold onto the reins of this beast. I must say that launch control worked flawlessly. Each time I had a little chirp and off I went, no bogging, no excessive wheel spin. The only problem I had was each time I took off the sunroof shade would slide open. I'm gonna have to find a way to latch that thing down!

Which PTM did you have it in and was it on a track or street?

Double sided 3M tape will do the trick

I believe torque managnent was killing us that night, when launching the car would take off and fall flat on it's face.
