Car was in RCR and operating temps above 150. Brake to the floor and when I floored gas pedal....nothing. As if car still cold or not in race mode. Happened three times in a row. Waited a bit so operating temp higher then car launched fine. What gives?

Was the transmission oil temp above 140?

^^^

Both coolant and trans oil must equal or exceed 140.

One other possibility (normal, without any problem): Did you launch the car earlier that day 4 times, and not "re-set" the launch as required by driving 1 mile or so? Without the "re-set" it won't launch again.

Both temps above 150 and car had not been launched for a long time. In fact, I thought long period since last launch may have something to do with it.

When I first tried to launch it, I made a mistake of not stomping the gas pedal. Same goes for the brake, it has to be at 100% on the mfd screen then immediately stomp the gas pedal.

The brake pedal must be FIRMLY pressed, and the gas pedal RAPIDLY shoved to the floor. The car apparently gets confused otherwise, and doesn't go into LC.

If it's tuned on Cobb and a CBA, did you install the vdc off map ?

Car not tuned, but it does have a mid pipe. I have launched many times but this was weird and different. Temps were good, and brake and gas pedal to the floor. I've launched a couple of times since and everything seems to be fine.
