    I've got a VAFC, so I dont plan on buying a Hondata anytime soon. MSD has the Digital SCI, but all I want is a launch controller...Does anyone make JUST a standalone launch controller?

    Why do you want launch control? The only thing I think it's good for is sounding cool. If your racing on the street you can't really use it because everywhere you go the road surface will be different. If your at the track on slicks you will more than likely need to drop the clutch from the rev limiter anyways. I say just get yourself a good suspension setup, good clutch, LSD, and good tires, then go out and practice your launches.

    with a rev limiter, on drag radials, you get virtually the exact same launch every time, and can get hella better r/t's

    r/t's are worthless unless you are in proFWD or some other class that actually USES a pro tree where r/t counts.

    the local strip here has a sport compact night, with $200 payout for 1st and $100 for 2nd.

    r/t's count, y0
