I have only used LC one time and it was in a 2012 Porsche Turbo S. You literally could have held on to the steering wheel with one finger as the car did the rest.
Probably depends on the road surface. Have used mine twice, both times it launched perfectly with minimal wheelspin (and without reducing the launch RPM). If the surface is bad, or you crank up the RPM beyond the tires' capability, you'd think you'll get some spin.


2009 E93 M3 - it's, um, pretty fun
