SWEET!!!

Campisano was a Ford guy, too, not much more than 7-9 years ago... I remember when he was producing articles for GMHTP and High Tech Performance. He's one of the few magazine-guys who's opinions I trust

Yeah, the launch control videos didn't show me much but it was a wet surface. Does the launch control system account for wet conditions?

I couldn't tell the difference between the two videos for the Launch
Control other than the guy at the wheel looked like he had a hard time getting it set and the one in the passenger seat is trying to help him out - fail

Thanks for sharing. It looks like a DYI oil change is going to be a little tricky. Hopefully that cover has QD's to drop it out of the way.

I don't think that was wheel hop, if you are talking about the third video. It is launch control trying to keep traction on wet pavement. Look at the second video it is without launch control, it just blows the wheels off all the way until he gets out of it.
