yeah, my rear tires are way low on thread from my powersliding practice ahaha! I was real curious if it would shift on its own and it did, giving it a perfect redline shift, my wheels were spinning till 3rd gea, btw. My adrenaline shot up, i wanted to go again but I'll try it again with a fresh set of PS2's. No more handicap U.S Launch Control!
If you find a more thorough instructions on the adjustment I would love to try!
I wonder if it auto learns the wheel spin like a 458 italia? Would be awesome if it does!
So even when in S mode, the SMG shifted automatically for you at redline for all gears? I just got the Euro SMG coded Friday, but haven't launched yet.
I did go through almost the entire LC sequence just to make sure it would launch at 4k if I let go of the lever, but in the end I didn't let go of the lever.
