Still don't get how this works. So, you're sitting at a light and a ricer-mobile want to race you. (Street has been cordoned-off since street racing is BAD!! -, no innocent civilians allowed in the area - no really). You press escape 2x to activate, rev to whatever RPM, pop clutch(?)/let clutch out and launch control flings you ahead like a pro?

I suspect that what happens with 6spd cars is you hold the gas to the floor signalling the computer to regulate the throttle for you with bias toward power. I doubt it controls the clutch so that would be your responsibility but I bet it keeps the engine at a set rpm for you until you are off the clutch. There might even be some factors in there for throttle management regarding wheel spin too. Just a guess as to how it would work. I think page one of this thread had more description.

it holds the rpm's at the perfect desired rpm

so you floor it, but it stays at 2,500 rpms....then you sidestep the clutch and watch it go

AHA! - the key info - mystery solved - I think. When in launch mode, RPM defaults to 2500 even though it's floored. And you can change launch RPMs in the "SRT exclusive EVIC"

It does say that on the 1st post but I couldn't grasp the concept due to cranial density issues.

Presumably 2500 RPM is the default and you can adjust it down to the optimal 1825 (as posted by someone else).

OK, so now you're happily off the line. The launch control disengages at 1st shift or you have to hit ESC again? Probably don't want to be cruising along at 2500 RPM all day.

Do you have to adjust RPM in the EVIC each time or does it store the previous one.

(Apologies for the TOTAL NOOB questions - I don't have the car yet or I'd try and figure it out)

Thanks in advance (and Merry Christmas)

The SRT video on launch control explains this better, but essentially launch control on the 6 speed continues to regulate throttle and torque applied to the wheels through the 1-2 shift on the manual 392. It doesn't hold 2500rpm forever, just during the launch while your foot is to the floor. Then it controls the throttle to achieve maximum acceleration to 62mph.

Launch Control

I just bought an R/T last week and I was reading this thread and looked through the manual and found nothing on it but I found an "Addendum" that was with my paperwork in the glove box. I haven't had the chance to get to the garage as it is nasty weather hear in the Cleveland area to check the car. Although it states "this vehicle is equipped with a Launch Control System". Although it refers to "you're owner manual and SRT of you're user guide. The way it's worded (probably printed on China) it doesn't actually say and "the SRT section" of you're user guide. It describes how the actually use this function for both Automatic and Manual shift cars. It's a yellow heavy paper notice that's about 6by 8 so if anyones interested they could stop by a local dealership and make a copy of it. Again it's included with all the papers and owners manual in the glove box. I so far assume my R/T doesn't have it so I'm not sure shy they include it in the R/T cars and not just the SRT's. My car is a 2013 and I can't even tell you the build date right now just thought I'd add my two cents as a new member on the forum. Also in the instructions it states you set the RPM's by the EVIC on the dash that you want. Take care and Happy New Year all !

Interesting... SO, SRT does use "mileage" as a trigger within the coding of the ECM to unleash vehicle performance features and thresholds...

Hmmmm!
