No, use launch control for races from a standstill.

Who ever has done this will notice that every time you shift into 3rd 5th and 7th you will get a jerky shift . Well that's from punching it in 1st at a dead stop.
Always use launch control ! Or.... Take off from a roll while the clutch is engaged.
So he only recommends punching it if the car's clutch is (technically) DISengaged and you are rolling already and in 1st gear (can't downshift).
