I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the 08+ are the same as the 02-07s. If true, then they're using the baseline impreza model trans. It's not built for launching, nor is the car built to be a straightline monster. God...this question is over asked.

No....launching is launching.Lauch control is just like a rev limiter.It's more for the engine than the tranny.

If you can't afford to buy a new transmission then you don't need to be launching.This has nothing to do with just Subarus.It has to do with AWD platforms in general.AWD drivetrains see 3x the stress.
