Default Re: traction control

If you're talking about drag racing, shut it off.
It's meant for low-speed assistance in snow/ice.

Leave it on for drag racing and pick up the pieces later.

NO it is to be used for slow starts like when you are in snow or mud and you do not want to spin the wheels

I think the post about use it and PICK UP THE PEICES LATER was a joke

Both guys stated NOT to leave it on. Why would you leave it on for hard launches?

Default Re: traction control

It's a feature that slightly puts on the brakes of the side of the car that is losing traction. Or maybe it's vice versa. I can't remember. I do remember that it's for when you have one or more wheels slipping in slow/speed conditions like the posters mentioned above. It's really just a feature that helps to sell cars--and does little more than stabilize your car when you're on ice, mud. etc. If left on too long under these conditions, you'll use up your brakes a lot sooner.
