    Put car in drive, hold brake and floor gas pedal, car stalls to around 2500 RPM, let off brake and keep it floored, pretty simple stuff. It also makes little to no difference with traction control on or off as the car rarely does more than chirp the tires.

    The pictures I posted from the SCT stuff was just a 3rd gear pull from 2200 to 6200 RPM.

    Anything I need to look over on my end before sending you the datalog?

    Uh...whats break stalling? Putting it in gear, hitting the breaks, then revving it, then dumping it on launch?

    For beginners, hold the brake, bring rpms up to 1500 then when it's go time, slam the gas and let off the brakes simultaneously.
