AdvanceTrac?

We can shut traction control off manually with a button, but can we defeat AdvanceTrac?

Yesterday's autocross I discovered that AdvanceTrac is stepping in and preventing my car from rotating around some corners where it is beneficial to be sideways...

If I pull the ABS fuse, will that nip it?

It did in the older models, so I don't see why not. But like the older models that will disable your ABS too(obviously).

I hate it for snow stuff. Go flying down my driveway with TC off and slide sideways and the car locks up and corrects itself. NO FUN!


Awesome feature for people who don't play though lol

That's odd. My car doesn't do that. When I get sideways I'm left to my own devices to correct myself.

Mine is 3 years newer, maybe they added something.


It's awesome for people who wouldn't know how to react, but I want to play!

I believe it was an option on some 08-09s and made standard on all 10-11s
