This is a case of the engine not HAVING power. The TCS indicator never lights, and the engine is struggling to get the car moving. That's why I have to let the clutch out so gradually, and why it often "chokes" (hesitates, suddenly dies out some because it's overloaded) when starting out. I suspect automatic transmissions (with their inherent slip &etc) may handle this a lot better. But with a manual it's a pain.
