      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

Theirs a map that you can use. I've not got round to trying it yet.

It's possible to do it on a few different ECUs, here's my Mk1 Octavia shot after hours in our old car park (eh hem) on standard management

How do you manage to program this into the ecu you then?Do you need to use VAG-com or will a remap place be able to sort it out?

It's a map inside the ecu that needs to be altered so a remap is needed.

My vRS is already mapped, would it be a case of altering the map slightly or would it need a full on custom remap elsewhere to implement the launch control?

Yeah would need to be altered. You only have to alter one map.

Edited and uploaded a new map to mine tonight. It works :)

Currently got it set to around 3krpm. Will have to test to see which rpm would be best.

The problem you face is IMHO it will always be slower than if you just used your head.

Its ok setting at 3k, but what if the tarmac can take a 4k launch to be faster?

Or only 2k, as its slippy as f0000k

Also need to think about tyres. Track day rubber will be gripper then cheap budget tyres.

Set mine to 2.3k before and had a little fun :)

I know this is an old post, but is it easy to edit the map for launch control? I have a 'tweeked ecu with launch control set at 3k rpm, but this is useless for a track day, as the cars have to be sound checked at 4500rpm! I can upload and down load maps but I dont know how to edit them. can anyone help?
