My best times have been with traction control fully off but on any given day I can have mixed results between partial and fully disabled. I think a lot depends on track condition, temperature and my skill level that day. This is also assuming that you are launching in a manner conductive to not breaking the car. If cost is no object rev it up and dump the clutch just be ready to pick pieces sometime.
IF you launch right, no spinning it will make little or no difference. I've done back to backs, with near identical times, one on, one off. Having an a5 and 91 passes helps.

I'm usually in sport mode (firmer and higher RPM shifts) with the A5 and TC half off. When I go with TC completely off, the tranny shifts soft and at a lower RPM like it is in normal (non-sport) mode. Has anyone else experienced this? The sport mode symbol in the evic goes away as well with TC fully disengaged.
Not sure if it is a B&G thing or if the stock ECU does that as well.
