Competitive mode

Has anyone tried to adjust the rpm that you launch with in competive mode? It would seem that that would be a great feature if the rpm was lowered to around 2500 instead of 4500. Is this adjustable with HP tuners or is it in a different modual than the engine tune.

If I understand competitive mode correctly it doesn't just launch it straight up at 4500 RPM. The computer holds the RPM at 4500 so when you dump it you have a boat load of torque, from there the computer takes 100's of readings a second and uses its torque management features to put just the right amount of power to the ground.
If I'm not mistaken moving the RPM down to 2500 would only make the system slower.
