the traction control will not be disabled below 20 mph (I think it's 20) even if you turn it off. you either need to get a tune which will completely disable traction control when you hit the switch, or pull your ABS fuse. that'll help your 60 ft and get rid of the bog you had. it was the traction control kicking in. don't launch much over 3000 rpms, feather the clutch, and you should start seeing some better times. just don't feather the clutch for too long...you don't want to roast the clutch
