First, the pre-2154 Vulcans were different because they were under Romulan influence, so your term actualyl fits, and strayed from Surak's path.
Second, Vulcans have stronger emotions than humans, so any outburst is perfectly fitting for a younger, not yet perfect Vulcan.
And we saw some outbursts in TOS.
On the other hand, Spock has weaker emotions and weaker suppression skills due to his human side, so he should be less volatile but also more emotional, which would contradict what we saw in TOS.
