GSM ESP/FAN Mod Worse 60ft. time!

Well I went to the track for the first time since installing the fan mod from gsm. The fan part of it is fantastic, but the esp part is not so great. I spun the right side tires so bad that my sixty foot time was 2.20, my worst to date is a high 1.8. So I left the switch off and just pulled the fuse like I used to do and everything was back to normal. 1.8 sixty foot times and no kinda wheel spin at all. What is up with this mod has anyone else had this happen.

Your disabling total torque management is why your spinning tires are spinning, that is what that mod is supposed to do.

So what seems to be the best for racing? Just pulling the fuse or what?
