I used it three or four times in total haha. It just takes too long to setup. I would suggest going out to a country road and try it, it's pretty fun.
I really want to try it out. Sucks it's a little time-consuming to set up. The husband's new car is simple.... hold brake and gas, blip the down paddle shifter and you are in it.
But at least it isn't as complicated as the McLaren LOL

I tried it a few times too, yes it does take a few extra steps to setup and you have to remember not to let your foot off the clutch or the whole system resets itself.

Do you first put the car in Launch Control mode, THEN put your feet on the clutch and gas?
Or do you have the car out of gear, depress the clutch and gas and THEN put the car in Lunch Control?

I think one of the reasons I haven't tried it is I don't want to F anything up by doing it wrong.

You have to engage launch control while keeping your foot down on the clutch. If you release the clutch it automatically disables launch control.
