How to Launch a GTR Using an OTS Map:

 

Confirm which LC map you have flashed to your TCM. If you do not have TCM flashing (you should get it BTW) then read the “Launching with stock mapping/stock style instructions”. If you have flashed a VDC off map then jump to “Launching with VDC OFF instructions”.

 

How to confirm what TCM map is flashed to the car:

1: Select TUNE from the main menu

2: Select SHOW CURRENT MAP

3: TCM Reflash. Under this menu name you will find your currently flashed TCM map. If the TCM Reflash option is not available then you are running the stock mapping and do not have TCM flashing on your AP.

 

How to adjust your launch control RPM:

(ONLY AVAILABLE FOR TCM ENABLED APs)

1: Select TUNE from the main menu

2: Select Adjust LC RPM

3: You can now change your LC RPM

 

Launching with stock mapping/stock style instructions:

This is for cars without TCM flashing or cars with the stock style TCM map flashed to the TCM

1: With the engine running confirm that your transmission temperature if above 160*F. If under this then drive the car around until you reach this temp. The car will not launch if lower than around this value.

2: Put the car in either Automatic mode or Manual mode using the gear select

3: Adjust your toggles to the following setup given the LC map you have on the car

               LC1-LC2 (R-ANY-OFF)

               LC3-UP (R-ANY-R)

4: Firmly press and hold the brake pedal

5: Press down the accelerator pedal quickly. Make sure the pedal goes to the floor.

-Your car should now be holding the launch control RPM that was selected by Nissan. The engine should have gone up to the launch control RPM smoothly and quickly.

-If the engine revs slowly and the car feels like it is starting to creep then something is not correct. Review the steps above and adjust as necessary.

6: Release the brake

7: Hang on

8: You have now successfully launched your GT-R

 

Launching with VDC OFF instructions:

This is for cars with VDC OFF TCM maps flashed to the TCM

1: With the engine running confirm that your transmission temperature is above 160*F. If under this then drive the car around until you reach this temp. The car will not launch if lower than around this value.

2: Put the car in either Automatic mode or Manual mode using the gear select

3: Adjust your toggles to (R-ANY-OFF).

4: Firmly press and hold the brake pedal

5: Press down the accelerator pedal quickly. Make sure the pedal goes to the floor.

-Your car should go up to launch RPM and hold it smoothly.

-If the engine revs slowly and the car feels like it is starting to creep then something is not correct. Review the steps above and adjust as necessary.

6: Release the brake

7: Hang on

8: You have now successfully launched your GT-R

 

NOTES:

-LINK- WHAT TCM MAP DO WE LIKE AND RECOMMEND (COMING SOON)

-If you launch the car too many times the transmission light will flash on the right side of your display. To fix this simply drive the car. It usually takes about 1 mile to reset and allow you to launch again.

-If you have BOTL enabled from your pro-tuner the process is the same as above. However, you will generally want to hold the throttle for longer to build boost. However, you do not want to hold it for longer than about 5 sec. If held too long excessive heat and wear is put on your clutches.
