It could be as simple as your launching technique. With all of my boats I give them an underhand toss close to the water. It sounds to me like you may be just setting the boat in the water then gassing it. Why the TS-2 is doing it and the others don't does make me curious though.

"the boat run just sits revs-up and hardly moves " - Prop too small/cavitation?
