If everyone used this "launch control" how could we ever be expected to learn to to actually launch a high HP car.

Granted it will be great for those impromptu light-to-light races on the street, but for someone trying to "learn" their car, computer nanny's will only hurt them...unless it is defeatable.
cus you dont have to launch at redline if you know what you are doing. too many people just redline the **** out of their cars and dump the clutch. really good way to jack up your drive train. if we can get a full dyno sheet on these cars and see where the tq curve lies, then find the right rpm to dump it at.
