You are correct, you do need to understand turbo lag. Your car is not powered by a turbo, it is powered by an engine with a turbo attached to it. That engine makes power regardless of the turbo and has no lag. The additional power of the turbo does have lag, but that is clearly not what is being seen in take off hesitation.
