    So I've been playing around with launch control for the first time today.
    I go through all the sequence for the launch control, but as I lift off the brake to launch, the display briefly flashes "Launch Control Cancelled".
    Is that correct, or is it not launching correctly? When I lift the brake, the revs drop to almost nothing before it starts to pull away, is that right?
    Sorry if its a bit of a silly question.

    I haven't tried mine, but some of the C63 guys will have - sit tight :thumb:.

    Although I haven't actually used mine yet (in 20k miles - yes i know!) I believe it can very hit and miss as to whether it works properly. It 'times out' very quickly. If you look on YouTube for the 'option auto' c63 coupe launch I imagine that is how it is meant to be.

    Thanks. On that Option Auto vid is does say Race Start Active after launch where I was seeing Cancelled on mine.

    If anyone else has tried it and found it not engaging correctly I'd love to hear from them. Especially if they then worked out how to get it working correctly.

    I'll try it again tomorrow with less time holding the brake on to see if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    Ok, got it sussed. You need to plant the throttle all the way to the floor to get a successful launch.

    Thanks for all the help. Happy now :)
