I just did that today and I was able to chirp my tire going from first to second gear and I was probably around 5000 rpms. Wasn't even trying to chirp my tires either. This was with my TC on.Oh god yes, I tried to accelerate quickly with it on and i thought the car was broken. the tires weren't even close to chirping, then I remembered that it was on and cutting all my power. It freaked me out . I would keep it off unless it is raining or snowing TBH.
