    do u launch with PSM on/off?

    to those who do hard laucnhes do you keep PSM on or not?

    based on previous experience i assumed it should be off but surprisingly it doesnt kill the car( as much as the M3's DSC) and can actually allow getting pretty good accelaration numbers..haven't had that many trials to really compare though

    the car goes crazy even dropping clutch at just 3000 rpm with PSM off

    Re: do u launch with PSM on/off?

    keep in mind that due to the fact that the engine is place above and a little back the rear axle,the car will have the tendency to pop-up as the revs get higher before launching first gear.

    Moreover, because of the lack of LSD(limited slip differential) thew car isnt so funny to launch it hard.


    FINALLY, keep in mind of the pressures that are pushed towards many parts of the car when doing a hard launch. Before you go to the dealer with a 3.000 Euro repair budget.

    I know seems silly but todays cars are not for this type of usage sadly


    Have fun when in-gear!

    Re: do u launch with PSM on/off?

    Dilinger thanks for the comments actually your points are dead on.. the car tends to hop when launched with PSM off ( even a bit under 3000 rpm which is by many standards not that hard of a launch)

    the lack of LSD may very well explain why an e46 M3( last car) handles such launches much better though i initially thought the weight distribution will help the p-car to be launched even harder

    i try to have as much fun as possible in all possible ways

    Re: do u launch with PSM on/off?

    i know the feeling krC2S, every time i m on the traffic lights, i try very hard NOT to launch the car at 4000 rpm!!
