2013 Challenger Launch Control

On the manual transmission models:

When the vehicle is at a complete stop, the driver engages the system by pressing the ESC button twice and then depresses the clutch and quickly applies full throttle. Launch control holds the engine at the desired rpm and waits for the driver to release the clutch. Through the SRT-exclusive, Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) screen, the driver can adjust the launch rpm from 2500-4500 in 250 rpm increments, allowing for optimal launches in various conditions. Launch control then uses engine torque management to achieve controlled wheelslip for maximum acceleration up to 62 mph (100 kph).


On the automatic transmission models:

When the vehicle is at a complete stop, the driver engages the system by pressing the ESC button twice and then with their foot securely on the brake, quickly applies full throttle. Launch control holds the engine at optimal launch rpm (1,825) and waits for the driver to release the brake. Launch control then uses engine torque management to achieve controlled wheelslip for maximum acceleration up to 62 mph (100 kph).

When I first heard about this Launch Control I was a little scared it would take the fun out of the car......but this sounds like it actually may be fun to play with.

Launch control. We use to call that practice back in my day. Pretty soon you'll watch your car from the stands. Oh well, I guess if everyone else has it we should too. Funny thing is that we still can't beat the other two.

Man they need to make this an option for the 2011's haha This will make the car much more potent. Mid 4 second 0-60's will be easy with the stick now.

So with using the ESC button, I wonder if this will be a PCM update.
