Noob question: pulsing throttle on 1st

So whenever I try to accelerate with WOT on 1st the throttle kinda slowly pulses.. What I mean is the car kinda rocks forward and backwards.

I wonder.. is this the DSC attempting to prevent wheelspin?

I've not experienced what you are talking about although there a bit of throttle delay right at start-up that goes away fairly quickly when the engine warms up.

Regarding your DSC question - is the light flashing?

That sounds like DSC is interrupting, try it with DSC off, and see if you experience the same thing.
