DCT Launch Control RPM Adjustment

According to the manual, we can control the launch speed of the rpms. I can't seem to lower mine and I've followed the directions.

1. Once I have the flag and I have the accelerator floored, I'm pulling back on the speed control past the resistance point (double click-all the way back). The rpm's are not coming down!

Launching from 5500 spins the tires too much. My very first launch on the car I somehow launched from a lower rpm and got no wheel spin! How i did this...

I tried but couldn't figure it out either. I just had Active lower the rpms for my LC to 4000K(thru their software) and it works much better now. Not nearly as much wheelspin

I believe you have to push the speed control switch away from you to lower the rpms.

Akash - i think your right. I'm considering getting the DCT software from ESS or Gintani which would eliminate this issue as they can fix it. Problem with ESS is i dont know when they will be in town next. Lomotion in Poughkeepsie can do the Gintani for me.
