Default weird problem with launch control

So say I put the soft cut at 3k rpm and hard cut at 3250. The MS will retard the timeing to 10 degrees at 3000, but it never hits the hard cut, it will just keep reving. Whats going on?

Do you have your rev limits setup in megatune?

I had the same issue, I went into the rev limit settings and turned the launch control to cut spark only, and I had it cut like 10 or some high number. That should do it for ya.

Mine doesn't seem to like me without a TPS input....I can activate it with the clutch, but the light goes red. other than that, it fails to do anything....hopefully this weekend that will be resolved (auto TB).

Ill see if that works.

Thing is I had it working before.. and nothings changed.. lol.

Maybe photoeye is right, I mean the MS retards to 10 degrees so the soft cut is working.. which means the MS is actually doing it.
