Take traction control off..put it in Sport mode & let it shift on it's own..launching depends on ur mods IMO! Find what RPMs right before ur wheels start to spin at & try that 1st if u get too much wheel hop then lower the RPMs! Then just try different & see what works for u.

What exactly does the Sport mode do? And how do I use it properly? I did 2 0-60's and actually got a better time with the regular Drive mode. What did I do wrong?

Sport mode just activates more aggressive shift points & locks out 6th gear. For a 0-60 it probably won't make a difference if ur in S or D because ur WOT so it shifts at red line.

Same boat here. In Sport I consistently get 6sec 0-60 but in Drive it's 5.8-5.9.
