Launch Control

This is a discussion on Launch Control within the Mustang GT350 Guides forums, part of the Mustang GT350 Forum category; I wouldlove to see a video of how to properly use this option. Anyone see anything? The manual is very vague....

    Saw a video on the net yesterday. Haven't tried it yet, but basically enter track apps, press OK to launch control, set the RPM (lowest is 4000 on the 350), tap the brake, and it is ready. Will try it next week. Also will experiment with Line Lock.

    Using the prescribed method, still couldn't the launch control to work. My sales manager said that, not to quote him ( so I am) he believes that it's locked out until the end of the break in period...1000 miles. Anybody else hear this?

    It is not locked out. We had ours at the track with 500 miles on it. It works the same as all 5.0 mustangs from 15-16. However our minimum rpm is higher at 4000. It is a bit tricky to use, and a real pain at the track to line lock, burn out, stage, set launch control and go. I gave up and just launched it! If you have the time and the guy next to you isn't already staged... go for it. Just practice a few times, you will get it. Thinking at some point I had to hold the button down, didn't say that in the manual. Several videos on youtube as it is not GT350 specific

    I'm wondering the same thing. My '17 is new, only 200 miles on her
    I've tried to engage LC but failed.
    I wasn't interested in doing the actual launch yet, still breaking her in, but I am trying to learn the controls & settings.
    I've followed the instructions to a T but when I hold down the accelerator she revs up past the RPM set point, so LC is not being set.
    So I'm also wondering if you have to have a certain amount of miles on the car before you can use these track settings?

    Mine works fine, now. I have around 1500 miles on it. Some on here say that it is not locked out due to low mileage. I did discover that using the prescribed method for launch control, you cannot try to ease the throttle slowly up to your set point rpm. You have to aggressively floor it to invoke it. Line lock also works.

    What is this “break in” thing you guys keep talking about? A dealer installed option? I don’t think,I have that cause my car ran like a raped ape up to redline straight out of the box!

    This is why I don't buy used cars anymore.
    While I don't own a GT350 yet, I'm sure in the manual it describes the engine break-in process (Part throttle until this mileage or under xxxx rpm's until that mileage).
