Per this thread ( ) you can't turn off TC in a 2011 WRX without losing the whole VDC system.

I see three possibilities here . . . your choice to make, not mine to tell you which

leave TC on, keep driving the same way, and put up with this behavior
turn TC off
leave TC on and dial your driving back a bit.

Keep in mind that in the event of an ABS fault (such as a dead wheel sensor or loss of electrical continuity in its wire), the ABS will go inop and take TC and VDC down with it. This is one of the reasons you shouldn't be relying on TC to keep things under control in normal driving. Finding yourself up the name of some recent TV show or other without a paddle comes to mind.
