Why does car jerk at WOT?

I noticed when I floor my car at WOT the car shifts REALLY hard (feels like a jerking motion) especially at around 60mph. Then the traction light comes on after the shift.

Does this mean the tires are just slipping or does it have to do something with the trans needing work?

Car only has 31K miles and has 93+ race tune.

It's called having a race tune on your car with improved shift firmness lol. Your tires are spinning because of the torque when it shifts and traction control is kicking on. So you don't like the firmness?
