So mode 2 and 3 are essentially the same?? You can't accidentally activate FFS or LC so why bother having them in a separate map mode?

Think you will find all the Ecutek tuners use much the same format, user desired functions can be requested and sorted. As they say "cant cater for everybody"

Just seems pointless, its that mental thing that 3 is worse than 4. You could have no mode 2 in that list and it wouldn't make any difference to the experience.

Launch control, flat foot shifting and auto throttle blip are all gimmicks anyway. I opted not to have the throttle blip at all as I simply don't need it. I have flat foot shifting and launch control on two of the maps. Tried flat foot shifting once, didn't think it was kind to the car so never used it. Launch control I've no idea how to use so never bothered. 

I do though have Map 3 as a full power map but with reduced throttle sensitivity as Mark found it hard to control as it's pretty sensitive on the first two maps. Ironically he's not on my insurance anymore.

@Lauren Clutch in, Accelerator pressed hard down, LC will bounce of it's defined limiter, release clutch.

Just in case you wanna try it.

Yeah, I might try it. Is the limiter for it defined already? There's no way I can sit there with my foot down bouncing off the rev ilmiter. I do wonder how advisable this is on a clutch that's done over 110K miles!

Mine was set at 5k by default, if you flick the cruise control stick up/down while in LC mode it ups/reduces the LC limiter value on the fly.

I have tried both and LC seems for me to less reliable than the old fashioned clutch and throttle matching. Launches are the easy bit for sprinting.

By default the LC is set to 4k rpm but TD may have changed it. You can adjust it, usually in 250 rpm steps, by knocking the cruise control up or down when at the limiter. I think 4k is still high, on my car it's set to 3k and even then the torque is too much.

I find that FFS just doesn't feel natural so never got it it work, don't feel comfortable with my foot planted to the floor when changing gear :lol:

That was my feeling too, so I opted not to use it. It seemed to drag the clutch and well I'm trying to see how many miles I can get out of the original clutch, it's almost become a challenge now. :lol:

I normally launch the car manually at around 2.5K trying my best not to ride the aforementioned clutch.
