Slight Stutter

Hi guys Just been out in the RS for a wee blast and noticed something. When i was driving along in 7th at 60 there was this ever so slight and faint stutter intermittently so i put the foot down it changed down into 5th then the traction control light started flashing and i had hardly any power so i left of the gas and floored it again and it was fine. Just wondered what the hell could cause that? Probably impossible to answer i know but im a bit concerned now

car is a 2018 saloon with 19,000 miles

Are you running staggered tyre setup ie. 255 fronts and 235 rears?

If so its common traction control intervention when the ABS system sees a difference in rotational speed across the axles .

My tuner told me there is a Haldex system software update available but I haven't had the need to get it done yet
