SQ5 Launch Control...

Can anyone work out how to do this...

I sure can't! And as it has a slushbox I don't see anyway other than wrecking the torque convertor (which i am not willing to do!).

If you watch the gear indicator carefully it does this...
S Sart-Stop engaged (engine off)
S1 for a moment as the engine starts
S Start-Stop disabled as revs climb to 3K
S1 for launch

I can't get it to do this with any combination of brake/accelerator/pressing the start-stop button/holding gear selector in S position etc...

I also tried googling A6 biturbo launch control but no luck...

Anyone got any ideas!?

There is a launch control program on all SQ5's, but it is quite elaborate to do it and certainly not healthy for the car.

My instruction manual says the following:
- The engine temperature must be optimal
- The steering wheel must be straight
- Put the gearbox in neutral
- Turn off the ESP/TC by pushing the button on the central console
- Put the gearbox in S mode
- Push the brake very hard for at least one second
- While pushing the brake, push the gas pedal completely down until the engine reached a high and steady rev
- Release the brake within 5 seconds and keep the gas pedal completely down

Not really an easy protocol and in the manual a LOT of warnings are written that warns you for damaging gearbox and other parts of the car

But for those who want to try, it is possible with the SQ5

Be careful, only a 250 times warranty; whoever uses it more loses warranty on engine and gearbox; so 'they' say...
