Using Launch Control before break in ends

What can happen if someone will abuse launch control before break in period ends? Can it lead to engine failure?

Your car will self destruct in 5 seconds voiding you warranty. Lol. I doubt much unless you repeatedly use it. That is put there to prevent premature ware or failure of the car. The engine and other parts need to break in or acclimate to the load demand of launching at wot. At least as I understand it. There are many references on here about same

Thing about launch control is it maxes everything to it's threshold. I've never tried but I've also just now have gotten to 1300 miles 😂
