I don't think the "average" newer mini-DVD, hard drive, or memory stick camcorders are advanced enough (yet) to give you a real good resolution image when viewing a launch in slow-mo that is shot at higher shutter speeds. For shooting this way I think the older mini-DV (metallic tape) camcorders are still the best all around bet for shooting a fast moving/rotating object at higher shutter speeds (plus you can find them under $200).
And shooting the launch at normal (slower) shutter speeds is really a waste of time because small amount of tire shake/spin/slip are going to just look like a momentary blur. But at higher shutter speeds (to a point) you can clearly see what exactly the slick is doing.
