Sorry if this is in the wrong topic, but I have a quick question. I'm running the typical stage 1 OTS 93 Map that comes on the Accessport. It states in the description that Launch control is set at 2500(4000). But for the life of me I can't find a thread or video describing how to get it to work.. mine just goes straight to redline. I watched a video just from a couple months ago with the stage 1 OTS tune that has launch control. Could someone please tell me how to get it work.

Clutch in, in 1st, slam the gas pedal. Are you in the economy map slot? you'll know if you are driving and only make low boost numbers~7psi. If you are hit the cruise control reset button and change the map slot. I know the OTS maps have to slots. 1 is eco mode the other is regular.

1 is performance, 2 is economy. Example from Cobb:

Stage3 91
Fuel Requirements: 91+ Octane (RON+MON/2) (95+ RON) fuel minimum
Boost: Dynamic based upon atmospheric conditions, fuel quality, gear, rpm, drivetrain, and map slot.
Up to ~22.0psi tapering to ~14.0psi by redline. (+/- 3psi).
Map slot 1 = Max Perf. – This is the standard OTS map with full boost.

Map slot 2 = Economy - This mode disables the wastegate and adjusts WOT fueling and ignition timing for efficiency. This can be used to quickly lower power for times when performance is not needed.

Also make sure cruise control is off. Use the cancel button on the 2016 controls to see which map slot you are using. I use the same map and it works flawlessly. Expect one hell of a thump when you dump the clutch if you are using the stock motor mount. Try that out, if it fails I'll make a video for you.

To get it to work does the car have to be in idle or with just accessories on?

Both I think are fine. You just click the cruise control reset button and your tachometer needle will go to 1 or 2. Then press + or - to move it up or down to the slot you want then click the cruise control reset button again to select. Now if you're in mode 1 you put the car in 1st and keep clutch to the floor and press gas. It should stop at the designated launch control RPM.

Edit: I have 5 modes because I have a stratified tune and Modes 1-4 are LC modes and 5 is eco mode. I switch modes going down the highway moving so it doesn't really matter when you wish to switch them.

^^ this.
I swap modes all the time from economy to performance. make sure you mash the throttle to the floor. There is a threshold that has to be met. Not exactly sure what the threshold is but to use easy numbers as an example, if you press it 90% it wont engage but 91%+ and it will kind of thing.
