Available Adjustments and How to Make them:

Adjustments are available on the Accessport directly.

1.Go into the Tune Menu


2. Select "Adjustments"


3.From there select Launch Control Rev Limit Slot


4.Select your desired slot.  These slots are completely customizable through our Accesstuner and Accesstuner Pro software, however the default slot RPM values are as follows.

  • Slot 1 (default) - 3500 RPM
  • Slot 2 - 3750 PRM
  • Slot 3 - 4000 RPM
  • Slot 4 - 4250 RPM
  • Slot 5 - 4500 RPM
  • Slot 6 - 4750 RPM


5. The load target for Launch Control can also be adjusted with Launch Control Load Offset.  Load can be increased from this adjustment menu between 0 and 300 Nm above what your OTS map or Protune is calibrated to target.  This may be beneficial if you're using stickier tires and find that the car is bogging down during launch.

To view your map's load target for Launch Control, check out the monitor 'LC Engine Load Target' in the Gauges section of your Accessport.  Increases made to LC Load Offset will be reflected in this monitor:

LC Engine Load Target = (LC Load Target table values) + (LC Load Offset)
