2010 Nissan GT-R to lose launch control

Broken gearboxes, voided warranties, angry customers - sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Well that could be the reason why Nissan has taken the unprecedented step of removing Launch Control.

Speculation was rife that Nissan was going to move in that direction, but now, apparently, a "high-ranking Nissan executive" has confirmed the decision.

According to Inside Line, three contacts at Nissan were pestered until one of them finally broke the news:

"It's gone," he said when asked if launch control would return in 2010. "We just don't want to deal with the warranty nightmare anymore. It'll make the 2009 GT-R really special. It'll be the only R35 with launch control."

So, although it will hurt the 0-100km/h times, do you think this is good news, or bad news? Would you have used LC anyway?
