I'm pretty sure it's DSC, with DSC mode on or even USDM MDM the m2 for me will pull power when I try to slide it making that jerky feeling, which is nothing compared to a solid rear axle mustang on launch.

With DSC off or with gts MDM (slightly better than usdm mdm but issue is there) the whole jerkiness of power being cut is gone.

FD RX7 stock: no traction control
MR2: traction control was a jdm option only, I do believe it did make it onto the usdm versions but only late into production as an option only.
S2000: no traction control
Sti: you said smoothly in the rain, if it was anything like mine (GC8, Hawkeye, 09 gr, and a '16) those things understeer like crazy and never slid smoothly unless there was snow, even with the diff set to the rear. So you probably had crap tires.

Those cars probably slid easily since the rear wheel width and wheel base is alot smaller than the m2 making traction less, they were also alot lighter too.
