Traction Control

I was recently at an event trying to see what the JCW can do on the strip(1/4 mile). However im having issues with the traction control

First gear...Launch...Car goes
2nd gear...hold it right there, ignition goes off...wait 2-3 seconds till engine kicks in again..Go

This happened a few times - why is the traction control intervening so badly when its supposed to be off?

I know it has a 2 stage traction control, but I switched it fully off with the triangle warning appearing.

Anyone elses JCW doing the same?

The traction control cuts your power when you shift hard into 2nd and the wheels wanna spin.

how about from a dig? Pressing the traction control button turns it off... so leave it off right?
