Well... I am glad for a nice old 101 on the proper use of this. I am focusing more on my driving rather than holding boost in a turn at this point. However, the topic highly interests me to try this anti lag in a turn when possible. The launch technic is easily undestood. I believe my system is set up for the purpose of building the boost while cornering. Once again...I have will have to just keep at it and practice.

yea i dont know about y'all but my default launch control is anti-lag. I have it set to 20psi, but if you rice the car at a light -the boost coming off throttle with no compensational intake for the car usually causes a stall.

other thing is sometimes the "muscle heads" need to be put in thier place. the way i see it...if you are a dick and cause me to use my launch control on the street-you see it and hear it and still arent scared...i need to be worried. lol.

Another helpful tip with the anti-lag might give you a reason to use this system. It is not a very easy driving technique at a glance for me to accomplish, but you can use this system in track racing. While going into the turn if you are able to keep your foot on the gas without flooring it and holding the clutch, you can build boost in a turn. While coming out of the turn, naturally slip the clutch back out and you should be holding some of the boost you would normally lose without the anti-lag. I have yet to test this. This is per my tuner's understanding of the anti-lag. Someone that has used this with success could hopefully chime in on this one. Very cool system.
I doubt that this technique will be used. You don't coast around a corner with the clutch in. You are either accellerating, decellerating, or holding a steady speed, but always with the clutch engaged. Coasting Bad

To hold boost through a corner you brake with your left foot while keeping your right foot on the gas (not necessarily floored, though). You can rocket out of corners nice and fast. Works well on the AX course.

Alternatively you could play with rally style antilag, where the ECU retards timing based on throttle position (rather than speed or clutch position like drag antilag) to send unburnt fuel into the manifold to ignite and spool the turbo. It does this when you come into a corner and let off the gas and apply the brakes. It keeps the turbo spooled, so that when you get back on the gas you are ready to rock!

boost braking is what I initially mentioned. that works very well.

have anyone played around with the liftless shifting? where you don't lift your accellerator when shifting, and relying on your boost/fuel cut on the rpm limits that you set, sorta like the anti-lag launch?

Has anyone here experienced a failure due to the 2 step feature?

I use anti-lag to launch and also shift full throttle. It helps immensly with boost recovery between shifts. I've probably made about 40 passes like this and no problems.
