Default Traction Control?

Can anyone explain to me how the Traction Control works? Is it brake based or throttle based, etc?

OK, brake based... good to know. I punched mine yesterday pulling out into traffic from a gas station and heard an odd noise, figured it might be the ABS kicking in and tires shuffling on damp pavement, but wanted to make sure.

Most of my previous vehicles have been GM and GM uses a throttle based traction control that actually limits how much gas the engine gets in low traction conditions... and my wife's car is a Subaru, no traction issues there.

I had to laugh because I punched it in second after slow start in first and got the tires to chirp with the TCS system on. Usually it responds fast enough to stop tire chatter, but hot asphalt and new tires...
