Default MS Launch Control

So whats everyone's setting for their launch control ?

This should be a good thread for someone that doesnt know much about luanch control or what to set it to.

Mostly interested in what people use on their miata's, Fuel Cut, Spark or Both... and why ?

Also what do you guys set your Ign. Retard to, with how much boost?

How about you get your motor running right and tuned before dicking with launch control?

well lets see i did so and read that and i wanted to start a thread that was about launch control setting and what people think not how to wire it up in the board and such.........

Also no one in that thread posted the thoughts on what to cut for the launch control, spark, fuel, or both.

Used it for all my launches at the autocross today. I have it cutting fuel and spark, 5 degrees I believe at 3000 rpm. Works great so have some fun with it.\

Mine are:

Start retarding at 3000
Retard to 5 degrees
TPS = 30 (I dont think it matters with 1.6)
Hard cut= 3200
Variable= off
Arming flat shift rpm= 4000
retard at= 5800
hard cut= 6000

Don't use spark only if you have a cat. You must run fuel only or fuel+spark for cat friendliness.

good counting!!

He is just simply looking to see a decent amount of people post up their settings..no different then the spark or fuel settings threads.

Dont hate on him......because remember, the SEARCH feature relies on actual usefull threads, so lets continue to make them.

As for my settings: Im just using the stock PNP maps settings. i turned up the RPM but now its just more of a burnout control then launch control:

Stock 96 Miata...allseasons daily, worn Rcomps for autox:

Retard ign above: 3000
Retard to:-10
enable when tps is above: 75
hard rev limit:3500

FLAT SHIFT- i dont like these settings, use original ones!
arming : 6000
retard above: 5000
retard to : -10
hard rev limit:5500
I believe im cutting both fuel and spark

well, in that case spark only should give you a better response and that nifty bang bang out of the tailpipe.

Fuel cut is harsh, fuel and spark cut is smoother, spark cut set at 5* doesn't hold me at my launch limit RPM for some reason. It continues to climb towards redline, though slower it continues to climb. Might have to retard more like 10 degrees when using spark cut.
