Is Launch Control bad for your motorcycle?
Launch control will wear out your clutch very quickly. Use it if you need help with a holeshot on a Race, but have an extra set of clutch disks on hand if you do plan on using it.
How does launch control work?
Launch control operates by using an electronic accelerator and a computer program. The software controls acceleration based on engine specifications to make the car accelerate smoothly and as fast as possible, avoiding spinning of the drive wheels, engine failure due to over-revving and clutch and gearbox problems.
What should I set my launch control to?
Registered. Your launch is going to change based on type of tires, track temps etc. However 5-5.5k is typically a good point.
Does launch control build boost?
First of all, a launch control system has multiple jobs to complete to get a car off the line as efficiently and quickly as possible. It needs to eliminate wheel spin and hop, maximise useable power, weight transfer and traction and – in forced-induction powertrains – it has to build boost to a required level.
How much difference does launch control make?
The electronics simply react faster and more consistently than even some of the best humans can, MotorTrend explains. Admittedly, these benefits are often somewhat small. In Car and Driver’s testing, the launch control typically decreased 0-60 mph times by 0.1-0.2 seconds. And ¼-mile times were similarly reduced.
What is the difference between traction control and launch control?
Traction control is optimized for vehicle stability and the system can’t always determine the driver’s intent. Adding a launch control mode lets the driver make his or her intent explicitly obvious and tells the slip control system they want maximum acceleration on the next launch.
