2013 Shelby London - Agencies GOING by the well-known quote “With great power comes the need for great control,” the engineers at Ford’s Special Vehicles Team have stepped up to the plate to manage the massive output of the 2013 Shelby GT500. Whether a driver is a track-day veteran or getting their first ultra-high-performance sports car, the new launch control system on the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 will help ensure they get smooth, consistent and fast starts every time. Uncontrolled wheel spin is generally undesirable, whether commuting to work or racing away on a Friday night at the drag strip. Both safety and performance suffer when the wheels can’t get enough grip on the road. However, properly regulated, some wheel slip can be your friend. “Launch control is essentially a special mode of the traction control system that integrates the brake and engine management systems to keep the tires balanced on the peak of the mud-slip curve in order to achieve maximum thrust,” explains John Pfeiffer, senior engineer, SVT Vehicle Engineering. “With so much more power and torque on tap from the new 5.8-litre V8, launch control makes it easier for drivers to take advantage of the performance.” With launch control enabled, the driver just has to press the accelerator pedal to the floor and then smoothly and quickly release the clutch pedal just as he normally would when executing a clean start. The difference is that the electronics will automatically hold the engine steady at the desired speed and manage the rear brakes to allow the optimum amount of wheel slip for maximum traction. “We recognize not every driver has the same style, and surface, tire and climate conditions vary,” said Eddie Khan, SVT Engineering supervisor. “Most of our competitors’ launch control systems have a fixed engine launch speed. We’ve given Shelby GT500 drivers the ability to adjust the engine speed to achieve best and most consistent performance, no matter where and when they drive.” Ziyad Dallalah, product development expert, Ford Middle East, added: “With changing surface conditions due to the extreme heat, humidity and sand that can occur in the Middle East region, being mindful of these differences during development of the control system is going to mean drivers of the GT500 in the region are going to have a car that adapts incredibly well to the climate here. This is really going to raise the enjoyment and performance levels even further for this car.” Shelby GT500 drivers can enable launch control in two ways — either through Track Apps on the 4.2-inch LCD in the instrument cluster or simply by tapping a switch on the left side of the instrument panel. When using the Track Apps screen, drivers can also adjust the desired engine speed for the launch in 100-rpm increments from 3,000 to 4,500 rpm. When first getting accustomed to launch control or if the pavement is cooler, a lower speed may be more appropriate. Switching to racing tires or running in an autocross event on a warm weekend morning may call for a launch speed closer to the upper end of the range. Once the desired engine speed has been set, launch control can be toggled on or off by tapping the instrument panel switch - more convenient than the intricate multistep process required on many other vehicles. After the launch control has been enabled or disabled, it retains that mode even after the engine has been switched off and restarted, something drag racers frequently have to do as they slowly make their way through the lines to the next quarter-mile pass. “We developed this system to enable 90 percent of drivers to be able to achieve very fast, smooth and consistent starts with the Shelby GT500 regardless of their skill level,” said Khan. “Experienced drag racers may be able to get away slightly quicker, but chances are they won’t be as consistent.” Veteran drag racers will find the Shelby GT500 also gives them extra flexibility.
