Thumbs up **JEEPGARAGE EXCLUSIVE! Launch Control tips & Facts! Raise and lower RPM's

The 2014 Jeep WK2 SRT Launch Control has an adjustable RPM launch feature. Each time the vehicle is started......the launch RPM reset to 2000 RPM. To use the adjustable launch RPM feature you need to activate Launch Control and then hold the Launch button down and slowly turn the SELECT-TRACK knob to the right or left. Turning the knob right increase launch RPM and turning the knob left decreases launch rpm by 100 RPM per click. The maximum Launch RPM is 3200 RPM and the minimum is 1100 RPM. For the best launch...... use higher launch RPM's in warm weather or at a sticky drag strip Use lower RPM in cold weather. 2000 RPM is the best avg. launch RPM for most conditions. Good luck!

Oh man oh man oh man - can't wait to try this!!!!

(I'll try this in the morning - not running out tonight, had a few cold ones )

I really can't wait to see if I can recreate the 3.9 I got a month back tweaking on this.

How the hell did you find out about this? Is it hidden in the owners manual?

Re: **JEEPGARAGE EXCLUSIVE** 2014 SRT Launch Control TIPS and FACTS!

This is some serious "Jeepgarage exclusive"!! Well done Scott!

Can't wait to test it (or more accurately, can't wait to receive my truck, break it in, then test it...).

Re: **JEEPGARAGE EXCLUSIVE** 2014 SRT Launch Control TIPS and FACTS!

Scott - any notifications supposed to come up on the EVIC or anywhere for this? I just tried for a good 10 minutes and couldn't get it off the 2k mark. Tried every combination I could think of:
- pushing LC once, then pushing and holding a second time and turning the dial
- pushing and holding LC and turning the dial
- pushing LC then just rotating the dial
- all of the above while on the brake
- all of the above while on the brake AND throttle
- all of the above with the timers showing on the EVIC
- all of the above with the SRT performance pages app running

I tried it when I got to work this morning. I pressed the button once and once it was in launch control mode (just brake, no gas) I pressed the button a second time and held it down while turning the dial clockwise several times. Once I finished turning the dial I let up on the launch control button and stomped the gas. No indicator on the EVIC (that I can remember anyways) but the rpms went to almost 3k.

How was the launch? Did you get wheel spin at 3k? Different 60 times?

I was in an empty parking garage so I didn't try to launch. If I get a chance to test it completely later today I will post an update.
