Launch control is a program on some high-powered vehicles which helps put just the right level of power to the driving surface so the wheels don't slip too much. It can do this either by limiting the engine's power, lightly applying brakes to the drive wheels, or some other more rare methods.

Lightweight, high-powered vehicles often need a launch control system to prevent wheel spin which would occur at nearly any level of throttle input.
