Already tried. Problem is his ecu and traction control are on the same fuse. He needs a tuner to be able to turn it off.

Yeah, sucks for him. On his model traction control is always on. There is no button to disengage it like in Austins model.

Yup. We were talking about that at the track.

We will figure a way around it one of these days.

There is one good thing about being in the auto repair world... I am talking to a guy that is able to program or reflash computers with factory updates. He is checking to see if he can access the TCM and ESC modules and shut them off for me. Cost is little to nothing :)

Dude that sucks about the traction control issue. I thought you Austin had identical cars? That would be sweet if they could get reprogrammed like that. I do know that dealerships have the ability to do things like this but never do it due to liability issues.
