Where did you find "the instructions"? My PDF, paper and IPhone manual say you must have Sports Plus selected. They also do NOT ask for deselected traction control.
Without Sports Plus selected you don't have launch control so the engine/transmission is probably going into some sort of protection mode as it detects what seems like and is abuse. And you might also be abusing your own safety unless you know what you are doing with a pretty volatile control combination of full throttle, abused clutch and no traction control.
