highly unlikely.
Most people who drive for a living know how to keep the RPMs at a certian point.

This kinda reminds me of a van i drove for awhile. While in neutral it would only go up to 2200 or something. Cool feature

I hope we have good aftermarket support to be able to take advantage of this feature.

I would imagine a manual does not need launch control since you just do it with the gas/clutch.

Lower trim SE models without the sport package (Select-shift) do not have a sport mode. Our gear selector is P R N D L with a button on the shifter for hill mode. I've been told elsewhere on the forums that hill and sport share the same programming but I'll have to see if it works.
