I wouldn't do it all the time anyway. I'm not even sure if I'd done it even once yet, but it was just an amusing theory, Technically the original Nissan GT-R had a launch control system that not only was eating clutches it was destroying the gearboxes, the Ferrari F430's launch control also abused the hell out of the clutch of the sequential single clutch automated manual gearbox, etc.
It does seem like its at least emulating the function of launch control, even if it was a "glitch" in the programming per say.
