Elaborate. What are you trying to do now that is ending up different than the same procedure did before?

There was no OEM official 'launch mode' on any previous year of of the FXT, but Subaru certainly could have changed some programming with preserving the CVT in mind. Launching this car seems like a quick ticket to the CVT replacement shop, even on a stock engine map

Are you saying that you can no longer left-foot the brake and right-foot the gas?

I am not quite so sure your CVT would appreciate that even if you did find a launch mode....

CVT= no launch
While 0-30 time is not great comparing to other 2.0t , 5-60 is better than most of the "premium" compact SUV with 2.0t

I saw all the videos and also wondered about this but I really don't see a need to do this because the CVT will eventually go and I'm not trying to come out of pocket.
