The wider stickier pilot sport 3 tires cause it to bog instead of hop at least according to Duane(dyn085). The o.e. continentals in the 16 size spin easily and therefore induce hop badly with the TCS on at a hard launch. With it off it's not catastrophically bad but it's not great either. So I focus on not gunning it from a stop or from a slow first gear roll to avoid damaging the drive line. It's not subjective at all when it makes bad noises when the TCS fights the engine and the power train moves excessively, with the TCS on it's every bit as bad as the o.e. mount at launch, otherwise it's not terrible.
