    Does the Launch Mode on the Charger not work? Ive tried it 3 times now and do as instructed. Break hard, quickly press throttle. And my car just starts to do a burnout. . . . Dont think this is the way it is supposed to work haha. It works great on my srt8 jeep.

    Any ideas or info?
    Thanks

    Are you past 500 miles? It won't engage until you're past 500 on the odometer.

    I don't think you are suppose to touch the throttle and set your launch RPM in the SRT pages.

    That's all I had. I'm not far enough into mileage to even try it. I'll let you know what I find when I get there.

    im not sure if it actually restricts input to the wheels until you let off the break or what but thats what it seems to do on my jeep. Well what it is supposed to do lol because clearly doing a burnout isnt doing what it is supposed to do to launch the car haha

    Please read page 362, through 364 of your owners manual. Once setup, apply the brakes, quickly go to WOT, check for count down in DID, release brake, keep WOT, keep the wheels straight and hold on.

    Lower the rpm to 2000 or less. In the launch setting The stall converter is like 2100 that's why the tires spin.

    It is rather simple, you have to be on a level surface and wheels need to be pointing straight. Start with launch mode rpm at 1500.

    Hit the launch button the screen on the dash will tell you that you are ready. Hold down the brake pedal with your left foot and when ready push the gas pedal to the floor. It should hold the rpm to 1500, let go of the break and have fun!

    You can do that same launch wit out the mode car can be power braked up to 2000 n change before tires spins

    Launch mode should be you set rpm at that rpm desired and car stalls and then lock up when let go of brake

    Gtr launch is serious but can cost a tranny or 2

    I can't wait to try it but it looks like I'll have to wait for 310 more miles.
