There always exciting to watch run but usally not for the right reasons.
I've used it plenty of times, just never had it at the track. Everything I have heard so far from people who have tracked them is the LC helps with consistency but their best times are LC/TC/AT all turned off.
It sounds like the clutch protection is just as detrimental as a lack of traction as well. A member on another site turned his off through one of his tunes, made a new PB on the next pass, but didn't run again because of the smell of his clutch.
Personally, I have had better luck with LC on and TC in Sport Mode than I have with it off. Of course that is just me comparing my 0-60 times to each other using the track aps in the car itself.
I'll admit the car is harder to launch than I anticipated.
