Tried launch control for the first time today

820 miles on her so I figured it was time. Wow what a rush. Had my gf in the rig 110lbs, a friend 210lbs, me 215, 3/4 tank of 93 and about 100 pounds of crap in the rear. 5.0 0-60mph, second attempt 5.1 seconds. Seems that the launch is restricted to 2000rpm. I have yet to crack the owners manual but I thought you could raise the launch up to 4000rpm. Saw this on you tube but was unable to change it. The road was pretty level, slightly damp, 35f out. No spin at all just a pause and go. IMO with just me , with 1/4 tank and the 100pounds of crap out of the truck a 4.8 is a guarantee. I also have the spare tire.

On a prepped track I think even quicker. Can't wait to get it to the drags!

Launch RPM is set to 2500 RPM. I launched my 15' for first time over the weekend, didn't feel wheel spin but pulled a 4.0 sec. Much too fast to be legit. uploadfromtaptalk1423522861288.jpg

To change the Rpms push and hold launch and turn the dial clockwise.

Push to activate launch
Push and hold launch while turning the dial.

Enjoy

No need to turn dials, just hold the brake a little longer and the rpm's will scream up on their own.
