Re: auto launch

No, I mean instead of stalling it up all the way you just nail the gas from idle and flash the converter. It should give a bit more of a *shock* to the drivetrain and possibly get some tire speed up.....it's another options in vehicles that need that extra oomph off the line

Re: auto launch

Honestly, the 3.8's are dogs off the line. Without that tlok and taller gear ratio, they are sluggish. Some suspension work and wider tires will help you launch better, but the tlok/gears and a tune is your best bet.
