Launch control or not??

Hey guys: I have a 2009 cobalt SS with a 91 octane superchips tune.
I was trying to figure out which launch was the fastest, with or without launch control.

I get a lot of wheelspin in LC then she finally grabs and gos. When I leave it on normal traction control, i get a little tire spin then it grabs and gos and it feels like I am gettin better times.

I havn't timed it out yet, just wondering what anyone else has come across.

I was beat by RKRamos.
