Let's all take a moment of silence for all the subframes that will be destroyed.

This is exactly my point. If the tires spin uncontrollably, it's either a "burnout mode" mis-marketed as launch control, or a bad launch control system.

The TTFS launch control works fine. Jesus. I'm not sure if you people are picking segments of my posts to read or if you're just completely missing the point.

I remember a time when if you wanted to do a good launch, you had to learn how to do a good launch. Now, "there is an App for that". #getoffmylawn

Your post was this:

No video but it works well so long as you have proper tires otherwise it's a spin-fest.
No cherry picking - just taking that statement for what it is... if the tires can turn into a "spin fest" to where the car doesn't *go* anywhere, it means this isn't an actual launch control system or it's just ineffective (regardless of tire quality). Shit tires on a good launch control system usually just means it tries to control load for much longer.

That might be a limitation of a 16 year old computer, not necessarily the implementation... but saying "it works, but occasionally the tires just spin" in regard to a launch control system is a little like hearing "the washing machine works, but occasionally everything is still dirty"

Traditionally, "launch control" controls the launch-- limits the power to the available traction to optimize acceleration. Tires shouldn't matter, other than the car being slower when less grip is available.

That's exactly what it is and it's terrible IMHO. I had the launch control removed from my TTFS tune from a local tuner.
