2014 SRT Launch Control

Hi Guys

So I've hit the 500 Mi limit and thought I'd impress the missus by showing her the launch control feature when sat at the traffic lights.

I was at the traffic lights on flat ground.. I was in sports mode so pressed the launch button, put my foot on the brake and floored the gas pedal and waited 10 seconds or so for the lights to go green.

Lights go green, i limped off the line and had to pull over to let the traffic go by as I couldn't get over 20 kph..

Clearly I did something wrong or there is something wrong with my new pride and joy.

After a few seconds everything was back to normal... it almost acted like I'd flooded the engine (and despite hitting the 3000 rev limit initially the engine fell to just over 1000rpm with foot fully depressed just prior to launching.. or not as the case may be lol).

I've checked my manuals and can't find any info on the launch control. Any idea what may have happened?

All the best

Buttsie

Re: 2014 SRT Launch Control

For some reason I thought i heard the launch control priming period was 5 seconds. After that I would assume the launch would be aborted. 10 seconds seems like a loooong time to keep the vehicle under that type of stress...

*I don't have my vehicle yet, but this is just my thoughts per my research...*

Re: 2014 SRT Launch Control

yes...your launch was aborted. Next time...hit the brake...hit launch control again and it will start over.

Have had the same thing happen a few times now. Usually when there is a lag or any break in the button- brake- gas- release- sequence. It's pretty startling because it will barely limp along for what seems like an eternity, say, if you're at a stoplight. Still learning its quirks.

Re: 2014 SRT Launch Control

Yes, I experienced this Friday night at the 1/8 mile drag races. Quite annoying when you're waiting for the lights to drop.
