Press brake all the way down, floor accelerator, rpm will rise to 3k - release brake. Don't hold the brake at launch rpm very long or it will go into a "transmission protection" mode and drop rpm to ~1400.

this will put a lot of heat into the trans fluid as your are basically pushing your torque converter to stall speed.

There's no launch control but you can break boost. Just press the brake all the way down then slowly use the accelerator to get to the desired RPM.

Just like the above reply states.

Hold the brake pedal down, push the gas pedal to the floor, wait till you hit 3k RPM and release. The entire process takes 2 seconds. Dont worry about over revving the car b/c it won't rev beyond 3k RPM anyway.

If you floor the gas beyond 5 seconds the stall protection will kick in and it will drop your RPM back down to 1000 ish, which it will stay this way for a good 30 min or so or until the trans cools back down. Just make sure the gas is floored otherwise your car won't be fully boosted when you take off. Also remember to disable traction control in order to get full power.

Do NOT perform this technique repeatedly over a short period of time, maybe 2x at most, then shut the car off and wait a solid 30 minutes before repeating a 3rd launch.
