Super chargers and traction control

I just had my super charger installed and am living on traction control. Now I know the obvious, that it can be turned off. And yes I had the center point calibration done. As well as I KNOW it's not REALLY comparable but I did have a FJC and had the TRD SC on it so I know some of the characteristics. But is there anything else I can do to stop the TC from engaging every time I accelerate? I'm talking like at 40-50 MPH merging onto the interstate if I accelerate hard it kicks in. And I have a 3/1 lift with 295/70/18's so I know I'm NOT SPINNING TIRES. Any input would greatly be appreciated.

You just gotta learn how to drive again. I can kick the rear out anytime I want with everything on.

Turn off the traction control, I have a 2015 and I press and hold the traction button for about 3 seconds until the TC and LSD light comes on for a second or two. After the lights goes out, press and hold the TC button again for about 3 second until it reads
"traction control off" and go have some fun!

The traction control will reset itself everytime you turn off the truck and you'll have to do it again. BTW the truck needs to be running and foot on the brake in gear or not.

Sounds like OP issue is ZPC related. OP, I know you said you had that done but I would do it again. If you are confident you're not breaking traction yet are seeing traction control issues I would do it again just to be sure.

@T-Ville Tundra , As stated you have to re-learn some driving habits. You could also drive with alsd on to have traction and not have the engine cutout on you.

You need to disable the traction control (aka nannies) every time you start the truck.

What @TRDPRO1 said above.

I will go have the ZPC done again just to be sure that's not the issue. Just wondering when saying "learn to drive the truck again" that doesn't mean NO FULL THROTTLE with the LSD, TC etc. on does it? That no matter the circumstance you cannot run full throttle without them kicking in and killing power? Example: driving 60 mph on interstate and flooring it to pass in a hurry? Not trying to be hard headed, just hard to believe that it's NORMAL to kick in under conditions like that.
OH YEH, AND THANKS FOR THE 411 EVERYBODY!!!

It's more of easing into the throttle than punching it. Definitely try the ZPC again as it shouldn't be engaging under your circumstances.

Second the ZPC re-do... My TC rarely comes on, usually only on a turn when road it bumpy or I am hard on throttle, and definitely doesn't come on when merging on to the highway. What you're experiencing is not normal.

Hey T-Ville, did the second ZPC solve your problem??? I am on a stock height/tire TRD Pro but experiencing the same issue with the TC interference. I haven't tried disabling through the button...I am hoping I don't have to hold down a button for 6 seconds every time I start the truck, I could be doing 80mph by then

I'm taking it today to have it done. As well as I bought the Hypertech speedometer calibrator and having it installed. I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE: Picked truck up with Hypertech done and speedometer is better, (only 1-2 mph off) but the Distance to empty and the avg MPG is still OFF as it was from the time I lifted the truck. If ANYONE knows a fix for this problem I'd greatly appreciate the info????

Once they load the SC tune (Toyota tune, when install is done) say goodbye to accurate mpg gauge. Mine was +/- 0.1 when NA, but after the tune, it is off by a lot. Not consistently either. I've been off by as little as 4.8mpg and as much as 6mpg, but seems to be most frequently off by +5.3mpg.
