Why won't American F430 have launch control?

The 360 Stradale and Enzo both had launch control mode. Car & Driver said "liability issues" were the concern. Don't tell me Ferrari's L/C system was scared off of our shores by the ambulance chasers and regulacrats like BMW's L/C on its SMG gearbox was.

Could you import one through Canada? Or do they not get it either?

On a larger note, not only can America no longer produce world-class products, but companies are scared to sell theirs here? If that's the case we should just change our name to New France.

I can understand that, for the price, owners should be able to decide if they want to play with such a feature.
As far as I am concerned, smoking standing starts are the last thing I am interested in, so I could not care less, I would never use the thing. Tried it once on a dealer M3 SMG2, but it isn't even that much fun. Guess I am already too old to be part of the Fast & Furious generation.
