If you are a car or bike racing follower, you already know what launch control means. If we get to the definition of the same by Google, it could be quite complicated for the gamers like us. So, let’s understand the meaning of launch control in the easiest way. Basically, launch control is software that is developed in special racing cars so that they can accelerate as fast as they can. This software uses electronic acceleration and stops the wheel from spinning at the same time so that engine, clutch, and gearbox do not fail. But, is this software present in the car racing games like Forza Horizon 5? Well, not exactly. Here is what you need to know to use the Launch Control feature in Forza Horizon 5.
FH5 Launch Control Feature: How to use?
By default, there is not any launch control feature present in Forza Horizon 5 as they are in real races. But, unlike most of the real cars, the cars of the game have no risk of engine failure due to over-revving and risk of clutch and gearbox problems. Therefore, you can manually perform the function that launch control does. Just follow these steps to do it efficiently.
Firstly, you need to set the shifting to manual and turn Traction Control On. You can find these settings at this path: Settings > Difficulty > Shifting/Traction Control.
Now, go into the game and try to apply throttle and brake at the same time. If you are doing the launch control, then your acceleration meter doesn’t increase. This is proof that you are performing the Launch Control correctly. Once you feel that the car’s acceleration is perfect, release the brake to go.
There is a possibility that you won’t be able to use the Launch Control feature and your acceleration reaching maximum. To resolve this, you should put the car in reverse gear and put the first or second gear again, and try Launch Control again.
