so does tom's tune on the svt turn off traction control completely? or does the button work for on/off? just wondering in case i have to put stock tune on for snow...
And just about anything you put it up against really. Im running times .1-.3 off S2000s on road course days and the sti and evo have a hard time hanging. My Sig says it all but still if you spend 7k on the car and 7k on suspension what new sti 03+ is going to be 15k or under and corner like These focuses can. The SVT is a great stock class SCCA car i dont think anything in its class can compete with it in my opinion.Mine will definatley out handle my cobra in the tight twisty roads.
Really? But from what little I've gathered, it sounds like driving without tranction control is a lot more dangerous. [scratch]Of course you can.
You understand that it slows the car down right? It's not like a launch control that's used on todays supercars that keeps traction and speed optimized.
My traction control still works with the abs like normal unless I push the button. The tune just made it so the ecu doesn't pull power. So it still works very well. Besides these cars are Fwd.Really? But from what little I've gathered, it sounds like driving without tranction control is a lot more dangerous. [scratch]
Assuming your '06 TCS system is very similar to what is on my '05 (you might have to do that research for yourself), the TCS system will pull engine power when a wheel starts to spin. Let's say you were going around a snow-covered corner and decided to floor it just as you entered the turn (bad idea), the TCS would kill that excess engine power and then your steering wheel would work more properly to help get you through that turn, whereas before (with one wildly spinning wheel) it would've been almost useless to you. [+1 for TCS]Really? But from what little I've gathered, it sounds like driving without tranction control is a lot more dangerous. [scratch]
A little wheelspin isn't always a bad thing for a launch, you just don't want too much.So when I want to get a faster more powerful jump off the line, I guess the obvious thing to do would be to turn off the Traction Control (TCL turns on) and then gun it?
That, plus turning off the Overdrive should give me a bit more boost too, right?
