M3 smg launch sucks.

Hey guys when I launch my smg it revs up to 2k and launches decently I guess. My wheels never brake traction. Is all this normal?

Why do you want to have wheel slip?

Probably could have left the word “Launch” out of your title

Get the smg flashed with ess tune with rev match... huge difference shifts faster n harder. I ended blowing up second gear. But tune gets you able to launch your car at 4K, also hitting gas pedal fast in launch mode is actually burn out mode, gently pushing on the gas pedal to the floor in launch mode will give you the best traction off the line

I assume with this interest in power launching - that you have your SMPs taken care of.

Hey I had a g35 before. They are pretty fast for not having loads of power. If the g35 was stick, I would expect a better launch compared to the smg. You can try Putting into S6, turn traction control off. Come to a complete stop, hold SMG lever forward, foot on gas, let go of smg shifter. Better option is to add a clutch pedal... Seriously tho the M3 is a highway racer not much of a redlight racer. Your gonna blast your subrame back to germany if you launch too much

You can flash the csl programming and it will give a 4500 rpm launch. As was mentioned though, reinforce that subframe before you do it or it will turn much more expensive later.
