hmm, going to have to try that.

How? Seems like EDC in Comfort (shifting more weight to the rear as previously mentioned) and DSC in either Normal or M Dynamic will yield the best results. I don't understand how M Dynamic will help since it is still controlling the wheel spin. I may be missing something, but I haven't read that M Dynamic allows for more straight line wheel spin when compared to the Normal DSC setting.

Oops, of course. DSC off will yield the best results if you control the wheel spin with your right foot. EDC in Comfort should be better in order to keep the suspension from tightening during hard accel.

M Dynamic Mode allows for partial slip in such a way that the car accelerated faster than the fully enabled or disabled traction control. Power setting on the Sports Plus engine releases the maximum power, which blocks at the beginning of MDM to accelerate as soon as possible. EDC: Sport - lowers the suspension by reducing the gap and thus aerodynamic drag by at a better grip and thus more efficient acceleration

So now I explain you. EDC: Sport - greater pressure wheels to asphalt, which prevents more spinin' wheels than other EDC settings. EDC: Comfort or Normal - then there is less wheels pressure to the road, which makes them more unimpeded wheels more spinnin'. It's not difficult

EDIT: I skipped it in a previous post, and this information is paramount. Description EDC (lower suspension) in the previous post is not until this matter at startup, unless of accelerating to high speeds - then aerodynamics affects acceleration, however small.

Does the softer setting reduce the wheel hop this car has?

Yes it does, but there really is no difference between normal and comfort, just don't leave it in sport

False...there would be less pressure in Sport EDC and it isn't dynamic, so there is no reason to ever use that setting unless you have a competition package car...

Comfort/Normal are not only dynamic and going to give you the best possible suspension reactions dependent on road conditions and allow more weight transfer to the rear wheels for a larger contact patch compared with Sport setting at a constant 75%

So, EDC Comfort more pressed to the rear wheels than on the EDC Sport? As the only one you have explained it to me - thanks. Others have written posts that are not anything new to inform. I apologize to everyone for my wrong thesis. Since the topic has already been explained how the EDC and other settings MDrive for quickest take off?

EDC: Comfort
DSC: M Dynamic Mode
Power: Sport Plus

?

Honestly, the settings are dependent on the conditions and the driver...for the quickest average take off, it's probably going to be EDC on comfort and M Dynamic Mode (Power settings are irrelevant as you're going to be on the floor anyways and there is no difference between regular and sport plus when you are at 100% throttle)

Some people may be able to get the car to go quicker with full dsc off

Unless somebody has better info, DSC in M Dynamic doesn't matter. Quickest launch should be with DSC off when controlling the throttle input for wheel spin. Other than that, just leave DSC in the normal nanny mode.

That's why I said average...you can totally screw up your launch with wheelspin so unless you know what you're doing, MDM or DSC on is going to be faster than DSC off

This - DSC is too instrusive, assuming one knows how to use their feet DSC off will be the quickest way to launch the car.
