Default Traction Control

The manual on traction control is pretty vague. I have a 5 speed and have been doing all my driving with it on. Should I run with it off when I'm not smoking the tires? It seems like I'm using circuits I don't need, and maybe lowering the mileage. Any thoughts?

The traction control only works at slow speeds when you spin your wheels. Just leave it on.[8)]

It has been my understanding that you generally leave it on. However, if you want maximum performance--take it too the limit or "smoke the tires"--then you should turn it off. Is this correct? [:I]

Gary03, that's correct leave it off if your going to smoke em'! What's the sense of trying to control traction if your intention is to smoke the tires? As far as max performance goes leaving it on may aid in off the line starts but after that the point it mute.

Thanks for the replies. Again my point in asking is...if it isn't snowing, and you don't care about the front end getting a little squirrely, isn't leaving it on running systems that don't need to be running? (Like braking the wheel that is spinning?)

The traction control resets itself to the on position every time you start your Cruiser. That's the default setting. If you aren't spinning a wheel it's not active or as you say "running."
