I tried turning TCS off for about 20 miles of suburban traffic driving today and about 80 miles of mostly highway + some streets driving on Thursday. There's definitely a difference in feel. Thursday I could sense a difference but couldn't really put my finger on what it was exactly. Today though my car felt like it has better throttle response with the TCS off. There was none of the occasional slight bogging I get after a period of driving gingerly for max MPGs and it just ran and shifted real well. Of course my engine/car running better today could be partly the result of the cool, dense humid air as it had been raining a bit today and the temps. were in the low 50s F. On Thursday it was much warmer, drier and sunnier. Continuing experiments tomorrow.
