Default Launch control & Flat Foot Shifting issue 2009 WRX

I was trying to set the LC on my AP for my 2009 WRX but when i go and click OK to set the LC it says my car is not supported. Same thing goes for FFS. Has anybody had this issues on there 2008 or 2009 WRX or STI. I wondering if Cobb hasn't done that yet for the newer WRX's.

You'll need the LC/FFS enabled mapped flashed on your ECU first then you can use that function. The reason it's highlighted now is for future use once Cobb releases the enabled mapping. Just matter of time till it is..

The LC/FFS maps for the 08+ STi's are available if you email one of the employees there, ie dan@cobbtuning.com

Cheers

Hey, since I noticed your join date is pretty recent, and you have a fairly new car, I thought I'd take a minute to give a little advice.

Launching your car, even with the AP's software helping you, is a good way to do a lot of bad to your car. Before you start launching, you should get some prices on driveline parts to see how worth your while this kind of thing is- clutches burn, axles break, diffs give out, gears lose teeth, etc. It's not something you should be doing regularly enough to have the software on there.

Having said that, everyone here has launched at least a few times. Be careful, be safe, and have fun. Just be aware that if you launch your car, it's likely you're going to break something and SoA will not help you.

FFS is just a BLAST. I've got mine set just above 5700RPM and holy CRAP. Of course, there aren't many places you can use that sort of thing without a ticket being issued.

Yes, axles break, trannys give up the ghost. Be ready for a 6 spd swap if you launch it alot-or at the very least a clutch unless your driving it perfectly.

Yeah i figured it would break something. I was talking to my buddy that has the Evo X and said his stock clutch is so bad if he launches more than twice it would break. I don't know if that is true but would figure stock parts are weak. Just wanted to have it. don't really plan on launching it. i don't feel like paying for something dumb i did. but the FFS would be fun. Thanks for the advise
