I've got Michelin PS4S all round too, definitely feels better for launches too, less wheelspin and more of a kick in the back than the dunlops I had before

I'd be really interested to see what the AWD 380 can do, I'm sure that should be able to get sub 4.5 especially on michelins

Interesting, might have to give Dragy a go.

Maybe a silly question, but what's the best way to get a good launch off the line in an automatic? My XE-S is my first auto, stands to reason that holding your left foot on the brake and building the revs before releasing would be the best way to do it, but that seems like it would put the car under a lot of stress? Am I missing something?

I think a full throttle and step off the brakes will just get the traction control system working overtime. I've found a relatively gentle touch to ease the weight rearward before giving it proper throttle seems to make it step off reasonably smartly and stay hooked up.

I found just a simple stamp on the throttle produced the best times for me with TC in TracDSC gearbox left in sport and NOT using the paddles.

When I held the car on the brakes and built up a bit of boost in 1st gear the car would bog down just a touch and I'd lose about 0.1-0.2 seconds consistently

Very interesting, cheers guys.

I'm looking at a potential a re-map after I get some cosmetic stuff sorted, but might have to look at squeezing one of these bad boys between the two to see if there's any kind of notable difference.
