With TC set to 1 the bike is still held back especially when the front wheel comes off the ground. It may only be up by 1” but the bike will cut power to bring it down. TC mode 3 will feel like you’re tossing out a boat anchor and is quite intrusive and abrupt.
Best to play around on the track where conditions are predictable and you can repeat the same scenario. Flip through the modes and you’ll clearly see their affect.
Or just read a book lol.
