Traction Control???

Postby Barks507 - December 12th, 2016, 12:37 pm

Why does the TC come on in the snow even if I've turned it off? I want to control my tire spin when entering the deep snow that is always at the end of our street. It seems to come on and rob me of all the power when I want to keep momentum up.

Well, TC is never really completely off even when you turn it "off" it allows a little wheel spin, but not enough to get you in trouble. The "safety nannies" are always in control :cuss:
