Launching a 550.... With or without traction control?

Good morning all, a friend and I had a discussion last night over which is the fastest way to launch a 550i. Myself, being the owner of a 2011 F10 550 and a frequent observer of these boards think that Sport + which disengages traction control is the quickest way to launch the car. He feels that that totally goes against the purpose of traction control and that the fastest launch would have to have traction control engaged.

Could someone please verify this w/o me having to go out with a stop watch to a lonely road... Which honestly would probably be more fun.

Car is rear wheel drive, no X Drive and has the M Sport package and no performance upgrades yet... Thanks
