Check the upper clutch switch. There's a little rubber plug in the clutch pedal that the switch hits. After 20 years the little rubber plug has gotten hard, cracked, and fallen out so the switch is no longer engaging. Buy a plug from a dealer or just tape a penny over the hole. But yeah, you don't need it.

This was the first thing I checked, the plug looks brand new and the switch does not seem broken.

It is set up as the trigger "launch", I haven't tested changing this but I suspect it wont make a difference. I set the hard limit at 3200 so i didn't have to rev the **** out of it to test it. and the tps % % set to 5. Spark and fuel cut.
the video is on YouTube im sure if you just searched " Miata launch control setup" it will be the first or second video>
