You need a custom tune with the computer aspect of the Traction Control disabled.

Yeah but if you have '04 like I do there is a chance that Tom won't be able to turn it off (like for my svtf).

You can install a kill switch. It's just interrupting Fuse #46. It will disable the traction control completely. It also will disable your brake biasing and ABS just to warn you. I've done it to my car and had it that way for 3 years without any problems.

If you'd like to go this route (late 04s seem to can't have it disabled with a custom tune) you can check out this tutorial.
