I can just picture James May & Jeremy Clarkson and the time it takes you S-Tronic boys to sort out your launch protocols.........meanwhile I am Richard Hammond.... me an my manual romp away from the line..... at home with feet up drinking a cup of tea by time you get to 60...haha..
Took me a wee minute to figure out why it wasn't working but i'd forgotten to turn off stop/start. I'll be prepared for next time though It's a pretty weird feeling but thats it done and i'll probably never have any need to do it again.
I'm not sure i'd enjoy being a passenger in my car doing that lol, but would be good to be in someone elses as it always feels faster when you're not in control!!
As for the more responsive, probably just adrenaline making you feel like its going faster another good reason to do it often lol
Can you do launch control in any s-tronic, or is it only on the S3?
Total newb here - how do you initiate LC on an S3? Current car is manual but my new toy will definitely be S-Tronic.
Start / stop off, hold assit off, hold the TC button down for a few seconds, put the car in dynamic. Then left foot on the brake and right foot full throttle. Wait for the revs to build and hold.
Foot off the brake and off you go!
