I figure, maybe we got the extra goodie of launch control but didn't know it and if not, then I'm going to be doing a nice smoke show
RS doesnt even know if all 2013's have it....originally it was a late 2013 addition

you dont have it....maybe the first few 2013's dont have it either

According to the official news release on September 1, 2012, the SRT models now get launch control.

As for the 3-mode setup, I have that on my 2012 SRT. Yellow jackets at the SRT track experience also had this feature.

Anyhow, I'll find some time to see what happens on my 400mi roadtrip today.

Well, it was a nice smoke show. Really not that bad though as I started trying out launches at 1800rpm.

Word on the street at Allpar.com is that launch control will be a PCM flash that can be updated on 2011+ SRT models soon.

I was at the dealer yesterday and sat in a 2013. Is there a special button just for launch control. I did not see one.

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).

i went through a 2013 EVIC 6spd at the dealer today and it didnt have any options to set launch RPM?!?!?!?

SRT Tech at Dealer says no PCM Update...

While I was at the dealer yesterday I was speaking with the head tech who works on SRT's and asked if the Launch Control feature would be available as a PCM Flash update for 2011's and 2012's and he said no.
It's specific to 2013's only he says.

I'm taking this with a grain of salt though. Techs are usually the last to know when corporate sends down a performance mandate.
