As you discovered there's a detent on the gas pedal throw and you need to press hard past same to assure wide open throttle.

Similarly the brake must be very firmly applied.

As you may know, for launch control stress reduction make sure your Oil temperature is up to norm, which takes quite awhile longer than the coolant temp.

[note: my launch control experience is with Audi but similar conditions and procedure]
