Besides what has been said, launch control holds the promise of predictable launches from a dead stop.

This theoretically negates the variables of throttle and clutch timing when launching to prevent overpowering the rear axle when launching, or otherwise making minor mistakes when letting the clutch "bite" as you raise the revs on the engine.

Those that are veterans of driving a manual transmission in drag racing conditions state it is a hinderence. Those that are inexperienced with manual launches of a powerful V8 might benefit from this assistance, until they grow beyond its predictability.

One can interpolate from there.
