Sorry new here and trying to find out as much as poss before committing, I have done a search but no joy, does the car need to be taken to a garage too tell if launch control has been used / abused ? Is it a quick job too tell ? Thanks in advance.
Ian from Litchfield downloaded the data from my ECU at the weekend when I had a Y pipe fitted.
He explained that the first time he does that it will show 0 in the launches and then start the counter so he could not tell me how many times it had been launched. But it would start counting thereafter.
What he did explain was that the things to look for are warnings regarding the clutches, transmission and oil temperatures (if it has gone above 110c) as they are an indication that the vehicle has had a hard life, tracked etc. oil temps above 110c also mean increased frequency servicing for my2011 onwards to 6 months instead of annually.
Fortunately there were no warning on anything for my car.
Hopes that makes sense, Litchfield would probably explain it much better than me.
