2019 c63s coupe - Race Start not working?

Hey guys, just bought a 2019 c63s coupe and passed my 1k mile break in. Was trying to engage launch control/race start and cant get it to engage?

The engine temps are in range, and in s+...

The owners manual says just to depress the brake pedal and accelerator and the release the gas pedal.

The previous method required you to pull the shift paddles forward prior. I have tried both but neither turn on race start?

I'd really appreciate any help...

I had the same issue (2019 C63s Sedan). You have to floor the gas pedal while holding the brake to get it into race start. You can't just slowly do it or it will freak out. Don't be shy. As long as you are in S+ or Race mode, it will go. You don't have to do anything with the paddles in 2019+ with the 9-speed.

Steering should be in the center position, amongst other parameters .
The slightest turn will not allow race start.

Figured it out. You actually have to press the break and slam the gas to initiate the rpm increase. Once it hits 4500rpm you let go of the brake to create havoc 😈... no paddles necessary.

Thank you! I saw this after I realized what I was doing wrong. You're exactly right, I was gradually applying pressure, not punching it... pretty impressive feature

2019 C63S COUPE
HI ALL ,
I'M NEW TO THIS WEBSITE FORUM.
I HAVE A 2109 C63S COUPE AND WANTED TO KNOW THE BEST SETTING TO MAXIMIZE ACCELERATION WITH LAUNCH CONTROL.
I DRIVE IN RACE MODE PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THE TIME.
IS TRACTION IN SPORT MODE BEST OR OFF COMPLETELY AND USING THE AMG DRIVE VARIABLE TRACTION SETTINGS? IF SO WHICH NUMBER ?
I FIND IF I DON'T SHUT DOWN THE TRACTION CONTROL AT LEAST TO SPORT TRACTION ( FIRST OFF POSITION)THEN THE REV LIMITER KICKS IN WAY TOO MUCH DUE TO THE WHEEL SPIN.
ANY SUGGESTIONS ?
THANKS
DAVID

Hello David,

Welcome to the forum ,although I a not able to assist with your question, I would suggest, that you not type in ALL CAPS. (makes it difficult to read, as well is normally reserved for YELLING) ... just my .02 :-)

I am sure someone will be able to assist you on your question.
