Wow...Tried Launch Mode the first time today...
I literally felt the blood rushing from my brain during the acceleration
I would suggest not using this mode when transporting people with heart conditions...:rolleyes:

Sounds fun. Thanks for sharing.

The challenge will be to use it a safe location. My thrill riders may prefer Lazy Ludicrous rather than Launch Ludicrous.

The hard core riders will push for the launch. We'll find the right spot.

What is the difference between launch mode and just having the ludicrous/insane setting on? My next question leads to does the P90D without ludicrous have launch mode?

I think all P90D's have launch mode, without Ludicrous you have "insane" mode.

From a complete stop in "Drive": with steering wheel straight, Floor + hold down the brake, Floor the accelerator, release the accelerator (display will show "launch mode enabled", within 8 seconds press the accelerator to preload motor torque, within 4 seconds release the brake: ZOOM!

On the Launch Mode issue----I've tried several times to engage Launch Mode by following the owner's manual's directions (a couple of times while Max Power was still warming up and a couple of times when Max Power was fully operational). The only instrument panel indicator that appears is "Both pedals pressed" or something like that. No appearance of a "Launch Mode" indicator anywhere. Anyone know what gives?

Thanks!

I may be the one with heart condition, so have not tried it even before hearing your recommendation....everyday Lud mode is enough at the moment, but my time will come.
