Honestly speaking? I definitely wouldn't...again, it comes down to knowing that performing such a launch can not be any good for any transmission, even if the knowledge of how to perform such a launch is there.

I for example have never tried to verifiy those 5.4 sec 0-60 times that I'm told that my car is capable of in my car.. Why? I know something may break while doing what is required to get such a car to 60mph in such a time.

Launching a WRX doesn't take a neurosurgeon either.. Rev to 5-5500rpm, and let the clutch out like usual....Then there are some who just pin the throttle and just sidestep the clutch... It isn't rocket science either way..Not automated, but much quicker a process to perform than "setting" the GTR up to perform a launch..

The knowledge of how to get a WRX to 60mph in 5.4 secs is out there....The question however is whether it is a good idea to attempt it if you are unwilling to pay for a new transmission out of pocket

I don't buy it. I mean you say that now, but I'm gonna have to call BS on that. There's a pretty big difference between launching a WRX and using an automated system that will do it perfectly every time. Even if it is the case that you would not be tempted at all (which I do not believe), that would be a pretty rare reaction to the exposure to something like the LC in the GTR. I consider myself a pretty responsible person, I don't horse around all that much in any car. I think I've WOT'd my 09 like three or four times in the 4k I've had it, and I hard launched my 08 maybe once. However, I know I'd utilize LC at least once or twice in the GTR if I ever owned one (which I won't, nor do I have any interest in), and I would expect most other people would use it even more. Considering that it was designed and included by nissan, I would expect to be able to use it reasonably without breaking something.

I understand that some people want to make themselves out to be smarter than everyone else or smarter than nissan now that there have been a few failures, but it's painfully obvious when people try to make statements to demonstrate as much. Where were all of these negative comments on the GTR's launch control prior to these few transmission issues coming up? My point...

What's an extra paper to sign saying use of LC will result in denied warranty.
