Has anyone managed to to turn the e-diff off in a 2008 135i

I apologise in advance if this topic has been covered before but I cannot find posts relating to early cars. My 2008 E82 135i manual is fitted with a Quaife LSD and is regulary run on race tracks. Despite turning STC and DSC off I am still getting a loss of power when exiting corners.
The nanny effect is not as bad as having the DSC switched on but it causes a noticeable reduction in acceleration. A friend in a 130i recently followed me for a couple of laps and swore that he could tell where the e-diff intervened as he could see the pauses in motion and closed the gap each time. It is a real pest as running on R-spec tyres improves traction to such an extent that it is not dangerous to turn the nanny controls off. My car also has a Cobb Accessport 3 tune but they don't seem to mention any setting that turns e-diff off. Any advice would be appreciated.

yea can be coded out. find someone with ncs to do it for you.

you'll also want the following coded if your tracking the car:

brake fade compensation -sounds cool but doesn't really work and just gives you an inconsistent pedal

ready brake assist - aka brake pre tensioning, again sounds good but doesn't work too well, again gives an inconsistent pedal.

reduced engine power to stop brakes from overheating - self explanatory (it's calibrated for stock pads, stock discs, stock fluid ect)
