    I have watched many videos of hellcats drag racing and not one of them have I heard the launch control activated.

    If you know of any videos with someone using launch control, post them up!

    Also, for those of you that have used launch control, do you notice any improvement in your ETs? I know the process is different for M6s and A8s so I am interested to hear from each side. When I test drove an A8 in launch control it seemed a much more difficult process of balancing the amount of pressure on the brakes to get the car to stay put. In the M6s it's just clutch and brake to the floor (brake optional), release brake, gas to the floor, drop clutch and go.

    I have read a few posts where members had used TC. All reported it did not work well. I really don't know why anyone would use it. The main skill to master in drag racing is the launch. If you take that out of the equation you might as well drive the car down the track with a remote control...just my opinion of course...
