Launch Control

Launch Control is designed to allow for more consistent stationary launches (i.e drag racing). When activated, it controls the rate at which engine RPM increases to minimise wheel spin.

It requires the installation of a vehicle speed sensor (driven by non spinning wheels, and connected to a digital input), and limits the engine RPM according to the speed reported by this sensor. Additionally, for turbo charged applications, the ignition can be retarded while the Launch Control is active, which will provide increased boost pressure.

Launch Control can be activated permanently or governed by an external or clutch pedal switch.
