    Thumbs up Audi R8 V10 Plus Launch Control + Video

    YO YO...WASSUP Beeyatches!

    Quiet a few people have asked me how to use Launch control.

    Instructions below and a video also of me making a t!t out of myself...I am sure to everyones liking....apologies it was so rushed...1 Take...

    1. Put car in Dynamic mode
    2. Put in sport
    3. turn off stability
    4. Press and hold your foot on brake
    5. Press button on side of the gear lever (top)
    6. Pressing accelerator whilst keeping the brake pressed, notice the car does not move.
    7. Press accelerator till launch control activated comes up on screen...

    LAUNCH CONTROL ACTIVATED BITCH3S!!!

    8. Releasing the break whilst having the accelerator pressed will initiate the flux capacitor and you will go back in time with Marty and Doc and have lots of unprotected sex with all kinds of fit birds...

    Video of the full journey below:

    Please use at your own risk, as I have not got a clue how this impacts the warranty....I have never actually used it...kinda pointless when 0-60 is like 3 seconds...and you get all the h@nd jobs you want without having to actually race....IMO....(lol)

    I do it but don't have to Press button on side of the gear lever (top)... just put it on Dynamic, traction control off, left pedal to break, right pedal to the floor and let go

    Oh and you can do all the LC that you want, this will not void your warranty... in fact, if you do this without giving time to the tranny to cool down the TCU will not allow it until is in the right temp.

    Can you use launch control in performance mode or only dynamic mode?

    I may have a proper play around on the weekend, and do a proper video. Also need to do a video for the wiring to accessory power so it only switches on when ignition is on. Any other things you think may be of use to you guys?


    Cheers for the feedback guys..

    Hey great video, wrong instructions and then you don't actually try it out properly - looking forward to the wiring video!

    Not without running dedicated wires that have nothing to do with the existing harness.
