Help...Track key rev issue?

Got track key last week. Love it! Except....

Anyone had an issue where it won't rev passed about 2000 rpm while in neutral. Happened twice today soon after startup Red key Sorta annoying. Doesn't always happen. No CEL are on. Any help or insight is appreciated.

Definitly launch control,turn it up if you want it to rev higher.Mine is set at 2900 RPM's and it fries the tires.Street tires won't hook up!

Where are the instructions for launch control? I didn't do anything so perhaps 2100 is the default?

Found the Ford instructions: http://www.fordracingparts.com/trackey/include/TracKey_Customer_Instructions_V2.0.pdf

I'll try tomorrow.

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
default is the 2000rpm it is 100% the reason your car is doing what it is doing.

To adjust the speed set-point, the engine must be running, the vehicle must be
stationary, and the brake pedal must be depressed. Hold down the "+ SET" speed
control button for 2 seconds to enter set mode. The tachometer will sweep to 9000 rpm
and return to the current set-point to indicate the set mode has been entered. Use the
"+ SET" and "- SET" buttons to select the desired launch speed in increments of 100 rpm. Once the desired launch speed is shown on the tachometer, press the "ON"
button to store the new value. The tachometer will sweep to 9000 rpm, then pause
briefly at the speed set-point, before returning to normal operation. Launch control will
now be enabled whenever the vehicle is stationary and the clutch pedal is depressed.
The speed set-point is maintained after vehicle shut-down so it does not need to be set
every key cycle unless a new speed set-point is desired.

If you want to rev it up in neutral, just let the clutch out first. She will rev to the limit then regardless of what launch control is set at.
