Launch mode or not it's still the same thing. If u're going to hurt the components then they're going to be hurt.
Launching a autobox car with 2k rpm is much kinder than dropping the clutch for a manual car at 2k rpm (some cars might stall if only 2k rpm). That's cos all u're doing to the auto is to heat up the fluids inside the torque converter. As long as u let the fluid cool down in between each run, u won't do much harm (unless of course u launch the car like that every day).
