Default Launch control while in neutral?

So I was tuning my no load points today and noticed my launch control kicked in. I checked my ECU Data screen and the launch flag does not turn green, but it still keeps kicking in. I remember watching the data when I was on the previous WARI (1.14?) and the LAUNCH flag would only enable while in gear and clutch was pressed. With WARI 2.000 my CLUTCH flag does not turn green when pressed and LAUNCH also does not turn green while in gear and clutch pressed. Has anyone else noticed this? Have I checked off some wrong setting? Even if my clutch switch was broken, why would launch control kick in while in neutral?

I tried fiddling with LC on my car a few times and each time it acts as a rev limiter. Meaning if I set it to 4k, it will work fine, but then when I'm moving and get to 4k, it hits the limiter.
Messed with all the settings, did the "learn 50km" and middled with switching between master and slave cylinders for speed readings, and no luck.



I'd love to figure it out someday:(
If you get yours working properly post up a map man. I want to see what I'm doing wrong.

Oh and PM Zxtex on here. He's the only person that I know of so far with successfully working Launch control and Flat foot shifting.

unplug your neutral safety switch.

My launch control doesn't kick in while driving and in gear, or above the speed variable.

Has it ever worked for you on previous firmware? I only noticed on this new one that the launch flag doesn't turn green like in the previous version.

Neutral or clutch safety switch? Is there a neutral safety switch as well?
