    So I finally got around to setting up the dragy app on my phone. It’s really cool. One thing I noticed is that McLarens in general have poor launches on the app. I understand it has no 1 ft rollout but I think the best 0-60 for a 720S is 3.04 seconds. The 60-130 times are unreal. I think 5.25 seconds is the best time I saw for stock. Anyhow, as owners, do you find it that difficult to launch from dig using LC? I would have expected to see a few 2.7/2.8 second times 0-60 mph.

    No I didn’t get it. Couldn’t get the deal done :/. But my search continues. That’s the reason I’m asking about the launch. I’ve now driven the car 4x but haven’t had the chance to launch the car and I’ve noticed a lot of wheel spin lower down. Has anyone had a good launch on the street (besides Brookes)

    Brooks wheels don’t spin cause he is running Toyo basically racing slicks. R888 something. But if I try to launch- I get wheel spin. Too much power.

    You have to warm the tires to 90+ degrees or you will spin. The Corsa's just aren't sticky enough to manage the power from launch otherwise.

    Are you primarily looking at 720s'? Or are there others you are considering as well?

    Joe, keep searching for a 720S. It truly is a bargain supercar, with hypercar performance and looks.
