      ^This...sad but true. I'm a serious buyer (In about a year from now after the last tuition payment is made for my wife) I was hoping for some ball park pricing and just info about the kit in general to help aid in my FI decision

      Cant wait to see who grabs this first!
      This would be my route but I can't afford a second mortgage right now

      This setup looks very impressive!

      Any chance of a group buy?

      ~Correct, but having said that the car in the videos has none of the above fitted.

      The option is already available, as described in the original post the video show's what we call the "Dirty" option. There is also a "Clean" version available which is the version that I personally prefer.

      This thread was made to demonstrate launch control and flat shifting and show what it is actually like, it just so happens the caris fitted with a Rotrex, the 2 are not connected. Adjustable Launch control and flat shift is available on ME7.x in both clean and dirty formats. MED9.x will be available soon.

      Same setup as mine, although there's a lot bigger pops from his car..

      Here's a speedo video, not making full boost in this one.



      And an engine bay pic



      And a spare bracket I'm selling for anyone that wants to DIY



      Note the bracket above is the same as what's fitted to my car and the OP, to suit the Rotrex C30. Not the new UM kit which uses larger C38.

      Just saw your post Matt, it's James in Ireland.

      I presume my car has the "Clean" version... Can I have the "Dirty" option

      Not really, Anti lag (ALS) operates to keep the turbo spinning in a closed throttle state. The throttle in both of the videos is WIDE OPEN.

      ALS is something that I am working on for ME7.

      Oh I was talking about the sound of it before it launched.. I know the difference, .. Anti-lag would sounds insane on a big boosted R.. I just got chills, haha. I feel like I've seen a video of an R on a dyno with anti-lag, might not have been.

      Hey Matt just shot you guys an email about the rotrex kit and a software question, but forgot to ask whats the difference b/w the dirty and clean options? Didn't see it on your site..

      The dirty version creates dirty gas in the exhaust (un burnt fuel) and will create flames. The clean version doesn't and runs a full clean exhaust gas

      Can launch control and no shift be mapped on top of another company`s map or does the ECU have to be completely mapped by UN ?

      Don't hold me to this, but from previous answers on this question I think the Launch Control & No Lift Shift is only available as an ad on to existing UM software.

      Would you not ditch the HPA software and run UM? There are more benefits to be had than just the ad on's. Proven gains on here I believe..

      Awesome thanks Matt, Is it a spark cut vs fuel cut thing?

      It is to do with the control strategy of fuel and ignition, not necessarily cutting either.

      I thought so, thanks for the reply. Nice to hear there is a clean version as all that popping and banging would get me far to much attention from the police.
