To better allow the Shelby to harness all the power during the all important launch is the new Launch Control System. Brief overview on how the system works: “it sets an engine speed when the clutch is in and the gas pedal is floored, then tweaks throttle response and engine power to make sure the car hooks up and doesn’t overly spin its wheels at launch.”
For all the diehard fans of not using anything but their own two feet to launch there is always the option of turning the launch control system.
That just begs the question; would you turn it on, or turn it off?
