Really? If I remember correctly, when I tried a launch with mine off, it spun the tires and immediately cut power to the engine.

If DSC is off... nothing cuts power to anywhere.

Only the rev limiter will step in when necessary.

Then mine is broken, I just tried it again, map 5, 0-60 and it spun and cut power off the line.

Stupid question, but are you pressing and holding the button until the DSC fully goes off?

@ParadigmDawg Have you tried DSC off with the JB4 off or completely removed?

Have you tried donuts after stuffing yourself with turkey?

Yep
you can't use launch control with DSC off but it sure does make the car fun mine won't cut power with it off and becomes another animal if you can't handle things.
