I have a PDK CS with SC and when starting autocross events I do the same thing. I leave it in automatic and just hit the gas. It seems to rev up to about 4000 and then engage the PDK clutch. It is a very fast start. Most autocross layouts do not have a very straight start and so I have not had reason to try launch control as this technique is fast enough for those starts.ok, have a brand new boxter-s with pdk but no sport chrono. When I floor it from a standing start the revs go up to about 4k, then the cars takes off. Is this normal, even if i have it in manual shift it does the same thing. Can I hold it with the brake while still on the gas, not sure how to launch it or what? Will the car chirp the tires on the 1-2 shift?
I don't know if you can launch any better than that without SC.
