.....to have it on or to use it? I always have my LC/FFS enabled, but I don't use it everyday. It doesn't hurt anything to just have it enabled, it's using it that'll getcha.

Well I'm assuming it works the same way as my UTEC, but I have no idea, so someone else chime in.

On mine, I have LC and FFS enabled. It activates when I have my clutch in by giving me a rev limiter. When I'm stopped I have a set rpm for my LC to limit itself to when my clutch is engaged. When I'm moving I have another rev limiter that activates when my clutch is in so I can shift without having to let off the throttle. Both of these are always active, but I do not use them in every day driving obviously. It doesn't hurt anything to have them enabled, it hurts things when you use them. That's how mine works anyway.

So in short, for me, as long as I'm not holding in my clutch and giving it full throttle, my LC/FFS isn't hurting anything.

It's your clutch/tranny mang. Depends on how long you want it to last for. I mean you can rev it up all you want to show off, but launching tends to break things (in some cases).
