All it really does is help with throttle and launch rev control.

It works by coming to a standstill and pressing the launch button, then press the throttle (can press the throttle to the floor) and it will rev up to a pre-set rev limit - say 3500rpm (rpm can be set to whatever rpm you choose) and hold it there producing a light misfire (bit like rally cars when they are on the line ready to set off). Release the clutch and it will hold this rpm until you have set off and won't exceed this rpm until it knows that full traction is available. I think it's very handy on a turbo car as it allows boost to build up from a standing start which is normally otherwise impossible without load. It's not a feature I've used much and of those times it felt a little bit unnatural because you don't feel in full control of the power delivery.

If anyone wants a Racelogic kit I can offer 15% discount off one kit if ordered this weekend as I am in the process of ordering a few others on Monday morning. RRP for the kit with launch control is £628 inc VAT so if ordered by first thing Monday morning I can supply for £534 inc VAT.

If you need it fitted this can be arranged at our unit for £225 inc VAT.

Are there any group buys running on the RLTC at the moment? I'm more and more tempted to get one, but will wait until some sort of discount comes along.

Not at the moment but if you can get someone else interested I will be able to offer some discount.
