Hard launches are hard on the car. Use them with discretion and understand you're adding additional stress that may cause a failure that may not be covered under warranty.

If the car is 100% stock wouldn't any malfunctions or broken parts have to be covered under warranty? That is the whole point to maintaining a stock vehicle not to mention the entire benefit of having launch control on a stock vehicle.

sure the car will be stock and you can keep a warranty but it will still be hard hard on your drivetrain and it doesnt mean that it will break before your warranty is up either.

LMAO a little of topic but I know dealers are going to see there customers of the Camaro over and over and over again. Not that chevy makes poor parts but with the power of the Camaro ppl are going to be breaking components left and right. Clutch burned here transmission blown there. Drive safe people please
