    Launch control on 14’ V8/V10?

    Hi all-
    I own a 14 V8 Stronic. A neighbor of mine has a C7 and we wanted to take them out. Now clearly I didn’t purchase the R8 for a straight line off the light road race car, but the car at a light will not allow the RPM to rev while the foot is on the brake, as if there is a computer glitch that doesn’t allow applying pressure to the gas while the foot is on the brake. Anyone know the answer to what the deal is in other words at a light with left foot on the brake and right foot pushing down the gas pedal the RPM won’t rev. Confused and wondering if I am missing something? Basically his C7 smokes me off the line, albeit being much lighter, slightly higher HP and more torque, but would assume the AWD would offset much of that. Thanks all

    As I understand it: With the car in neutral, turn off the ESC, put your foot on the brake, put the car into Auto, mash the gas - let your foot off the brake when you're ready to go!

    So make sure the car is in sport manual? And we are shifting on our own right? Sounds easy enough lol.
