    A little trick I found

    So idk if it is just my tune, or Ford purposely did this, but when in track mode sitting still with the clutch in, in or out of gear, reving the car to 5k or over activated launch control. So you can launch on the fly without going through the menus. Tell me if it works for you.

    That's what I thought, but it isnt anywhere I can find in the info about the tune, it only happens in track mode, which if it was the tune, I'd feel it would happen in any mode.

    So, if I put it into slot 2, it does it with every mode, but in slot 1 it does it with only track mode. Cobbs and mountune say nothing about it except for slot 2.

    This is the "official" page about the feature:

    https://cobbtuning.atlassian.net/wik...+Ford+Vehicles

    So it looks like it's enabled across all modes by default Cobb, but that is something that the third party tuners can flip on and off.

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.
