Two step adjustable rev limiter

What are some thoughts on installing a two step rev limiter? Maybe not an always on function but one you could turn on manually from inside tha cabin for launch control.

Actually, this would be the best way to totally ruin the entire car. These are not drag cars, the suspension and driveline are not designed for it. Every customer that has tried regularly drag racing one of these vehicles as come to regret it, often in a very expensive way.

I don't beat on my cars. Just had a friend suggest it and figured what the hell I'll get some input on it.
