yeah I am RWD and the front brakes will not hold much above 2,000 rpm while power braking. I was launching in DS mode because when I tried it in M2 and floored it, it kicked down into M1. Should I launch in M2 but try to hit the throttle so as not to induce the kickdown? My 60' times are in the 2.1x range which I think is a little high for my mods.
