Well if you compare it to the 2nd video where I didn't quite get it into launch mode Id say for sure.

As I learned you have to have some pressure on the brake pedal for launch control to work. If you don't have enough, it does what you see in that 2nd vid...which was still pretty dang fun BTW..

When it is race time, I will be doing drag radials and no launch control.

Cool! Thanks...I haven't played with launch control yet. Too darn wet here. Hope to soon though.:D

If you need pressure on brake it seems nearly impossible to use correctly with the standard... unless you have 3 feet.

Applying brakes on launch control or in a moving forward gear motion is not a good idea as it can wear down the brake pads significantly I'm sure

No I mean the car MUST have pressure on the brake in order to go into launch mode. It has to read at least 30Hg at the brake booster. Thats not hammering down on the brake pedal but its more than just sitiing there with the car stopped cause you are on the brake. I am sure that if you were to hold lainch control for too long it would back out of launch control. I'd guess 3 to 5 seconds or something like that. Don't know the exact parameters that will disengage it.
