I had a look at the C-series on-line manual and to me it looks like it has a mistake. Normally traction control should be switched off when ESP is switched off but the C-series manual claims the opposite. I have no experience of the C but it should be easy to test this.

Why are you trying to take it off?? I mean, just by pressing the ESP off switch...will turn off the traction control but will keep some part of stability control on.

I want to chirp in my car. I would like to pop the clutch without it stuttering. i talked to one of the guys at the dealership and they said that it opens up and let me rev higher and get more air into the motor but it still keeps its' traction when i push the esp.

ESP "off" really means ESP "reduced" - "OFF" will allow some wheel spin, and even getting the car sideways if you are really good and/or stupid, but it really only backs off computer intervention - it does not turn it OFF. And if you trigger anti-lock function, ESP will switch back to fully ON.
You can turn ESP and traction complete off -- the procedure was printed in Car and Driver magazine some time ago and you may be able to find it on caranddriver.com. I have tried their method and it will COMPLETELY disable anti-lock, traction control and stability control - this is a test mode (for dynos, etc.,).
