That was 2013 so it's been a while. But I'm pretty sure I wasn't running a rear swaybar if that helps. I believe I was on Kumho Escta XS 205/50/15 tires.

Only timeslip I could find from last summer completely stock. My fastest time was a 15.99 when the clutch started slipping and gave me a perfect launch.

Played around with LC and FFS more tonight.

LC still useless - just blows the tires off in 1st no matter what. Maybe I'll try 2nd but not right now.

FFS - wow. That is all. Wow

LC - retard timing more after launch, also time boost after launch.

FFS - Words just don't explain it. Dropped my 0-100 time at least a second. And makes shifts so much cleaner because the motor doesn't unload and twist.

I did, and still spun hard. I keep looking for the timed boost function, probably blind and it's in front of me. lol

*edit: yep, I was blind. it's in the EBC settings lol

cant wait to try it. this is exactly what I need.

and can't wait for wednesday. I just hope my clutch lasts

Burn the clutch instead of the tires. Then you won't get axle hop

Also careful with ffs. I retarded timing to like -5 the other night. I almost gave myself a heart attack. Like launch control but 5 times louder.

I was not ready for it at all. Post some logs next time you go out.

Are you running closed loop?

Concealer404 seemed to have some solid FFS settings in his youtube video, but doesn't answer PMs when you ask him to share

EDIT: Also, I tapped launch control on the middle level of the parking garage at -9deg because I was curious how much it echos. The answer is quite a lot. There were cops at the bottom level that asked me if I saw anything suspicious up there. It was hilarious.

Also tried 2nd gear Launch Control (because I just can't resist hahaha). 3500 spins a bit then bogs. 4500 just spins til it gets sideways and I have to let off. Haven't tried 4 yet, but that might be the sweet spot.

I'll have to do the testing at the track though

We are planning for this coming wednesday, the 13th.

I am pretty sure my stock fuel pump is about to die any day now, so I'll hopefully get my DW200 that I ordered by tomorrow and have the car all set for Wednesday. A few friends or coming out too so it should be fun.
