Launch Control Problems

Recommended Posts

I've also launched it only a handful of times, mostly when I first got it - bit naughty as it only had 100 miles on it before the first one. Baptism by launch :D

 

Haven't really found the need to go through the whole procedure of launching it since the last time I did a few years back. Though recently I've been driving more and more with ESP fully off (just for fun) and since I'm always in DSG S mode - I might do it more often. Though coming across a straight bit of road, no other cars, no hazards etc. is pretty rare where I am.

Don’t be tempted by a road near an airport. 😂

Actually......I often use the Shell station at Newcastle Airport for V-Power.  After this I Must take extra care on the way In and Out. 😀

Factory fit Continental 5 tyres too and not the grippy Michelins which a few fit on here. Car had probably done around 10K miles but not sure.

Andy, we know a 19 R like yours will do 60 in about 4.5 seconds from rest.  But didn’t you loan your Dragy to a mate, Dave, who also has an R?

Damn decent imho.  I’d be happy with that. Such figures were unimaginable a few years back. 👍

No Neil I’ve not lent it to anyone. Maybe you’re thinking of someone else 😉

 

The first Dragy run I did in a different location was appalling and over 5 secs with some wheels spin.  Thought my Haldex had a problem, but the above time must mean it’s ok.
