What does this do since you have the traction control button in the center console?

Thanks

You can turn the traction control off when you do a tune IIRC.

That button only disable traction when you're above 20mph so it's basically always on.

The kill switch will disable your traction, ABS and brake biasing so I don't recommend disableing it while driving on public roads. But it's fun as shit on an autoX course [:D]

Oh and I remember that some 2004 models, even with a tune, using the button still won't completely disable TC but all earlier models will work with a tune.

I agree.

A tune really is the best way to go to eliminating the TC.
