Earliest Launch Control?

I've read on the forum a fair bit about the LC.

It didn't work on my car.

Then I read you needed the 1200 mile service done.

It still didn't work on my car.

Then I read you needed 1250 miles.

So - I planned on doing a video just before 1250 miles to show it did not work. Then one at exactly 1250 or 1251 to show it did work.

So I stopped at 1244 and it worked! lol

1242.75 statute miles = 2000 kilometres.

I'm pretty sure the dealer does multiple LC at each service to make sure it is working properly.

I agree - I had to keep her warm on that photoshoot.

She came up in the aeroplane and loved it.

I've tried to correct the links.

The story is that I was contacted about using the aeroplane for a Calendar shoot. Obviously I said yes!

We had 2 girls but I cant post the best shots of the other girl
