With traction control off, I still get a huge lag when I sling the rear-end beyond 20 degrees or so. It's very similar (if not exact) to the throttle cut-off lag that you get when doing such a maneuver with the traction control on, just doesn't come on quite as early or as extreme. Sometimes I will get about 1 second of this lag when I snatch it into second gear (of course, spinning the tires) - again, with traction control off. I wonder if there is a chance that this isn't a traction control issue, but rather a air/fuel mixture issue, as it doesn't do this every time. The car has less than 5000 miles on it. Any feedback would be appreciated.
