Default Traction control

I was a little curious about how the trac control works on the PT. I was looking it up and found that some people say that it will cut fuel to an injector to reduce power to the wheels to stop the spinning. I also read that it applies the abs system to the tire that is spinning. I know when I let my heavy foot have it's way the tires spin no matter what. Maybe not so much with Trac on. But it doesn't seem like it's a big difference. Could you do the 1/4 mile with the Trac on? Would it cause any problems? I can see if it cuts injector pulse it could lean a cylinder. These are just thought in my head.

I am quite sure it applies brakes only, no connection to fuel injection.
I couldn't believe how noisy it is!

it applies the brakes.
Now think about the force the axles take when they are under load (spinning)and then the brakes are applied

a few people have broken axles due to the tc being left on at the track
