Hi!
Did You know that our cruze have launch control!?
Well it does!
Turn off traction control, with your left leg press brake pedal, and with your right the gas pedal - all the way down.
Wait until revs are stabilized and release the brakes!!!!! =========>
Actually it's really unnecessary, but cool to know that your ride have launch control

That's called brake torquing, and it's existed since the dawn of the torque converter automatic transmission.

It also creates a ton of heat when held like that, so don't do it often.

Turn off traction control, with your left foot press the brake pedal, and with your right foot the gas pedal... all the way down.

Sorry, this just offended my senses to read.

Since it's not my native language, thanks for the free lesson.

You are Welcome! So glad to hear that it's not because you are uneducated. We get a lot of that here. Bunch of Twitter Idiots think they are geniuses.

On the auto in the Gen Is it does not make you launch faster nor more consistently.

At least for a stock engine/trans. I've tried both ways at the strip and just holding the brake with the left foot while waiting above the TPS with the right is the best way to go.

Turn off traction and stability control and put in manumatic mode. M1... than try holding the brake and revving... release brake when boost is built

I'll give it a try next time I'm at the track. Have you had any issues with your axles? It seems mine are a bit sloppy, so I am concerned that I may break one.

Originally I'm from Latvia, currently I live in Israel. I can say that my true native language is Russian, the second one is Hebrew.
