Traction control

How can we completely turn it off? I know you can push the button once and it will turn off and I also know if you hold it down it is supposed to dissable it but no matter what you do it still controls the traction. What can be done to make it stop controlling the traction all the way?

Thanks for the help....

Hold the button down for a few seconds. The warning triangle will come up. Try to keep it straight while you floor it and pray to god.

When you hold it down and turn everything off all that is left is the eLSD.

With TC turned off you might be mistaking the eLSD's operation as traction control.

What does the e-lsd do??? Will this stop a burn out in a corner?

I was trying to see what my car would do taking off and taking a corner, it spun for a few seconds and then stopped.....

I guess it is intended to reduce the amount of single wheel spinning. You should be able to do some big 2 wheel burnouts though. I haven't tried myself, don't believe in caning my car unnecessarily.

With it trac fully off (ie hold down for 5 secs til warning triangle appears), you should be able to paint two lines all the way down the road if you're brutal enough on the clutch/throttle. Also coming out of corners, 2nd gear will easily paint double S's down the road as your snakey your way out :smile:

In closing, i'd like to re-iterate the wise words of -eunosracr "Try to keep it straight while you floor it and pray to god." Truer words have not been spoken.

Cheers
