If i ran the car at the track on the spray with the traction control on? would i do any damage?
hahaha I have had it happen a few times that turned pretty embarasing........one time a guy in a big cowl-hooded sn-95 did a U turn in a town JUST to play with me. I was on a little road trip, but left the bottle on just in case this happened.......First gear hit on the street with TC on while spraying=laughing stock of the entire town I was in. BUT he knew what had happened and had seen the purge, and did the little "bow down" thing lol.
I ran a 13.9 a few weeks ago on some slick ass street tires spinning my ass off. (on motor)........MAN I havn't sprayed the car in like 3 months!!![/QUOTE]
Ill give it less than a week b4 you spray it again...
lemme guess, bottle freshly filled, eh?!?
Hey old timer. I had mine disabled in the tune and in Vegas it doesn't rain very often. Because it doesn't rain very often all the oil and **** builds up a lot more than in places where it rains a bunch. Then when we get our "monsoonal flow," Showers pop up real quick and unexpectedly. Once that rain hits the ground all of that build up, floats to the top and makes the roads very squirly. I consider myself an exceptional driver, but with babies in the back seat and all of the distractions of todays world, along with my 305 DR's and all that oil, I still would like to have the option of having it at the push of a button. Plus I told my wife she can never drive my car without it being on. I drive 99% of the time with it off, but it would be nice that 1% of the time to not have to plug my tuner in to have it on. It's kinda like cruise control. I hardly ever use it, but it is nice to have it occaisionally. I've even thought about using the cruise buttons for the TC and OD, but don't want to lose the cruise control.Excuse me if I'm stating the obvious, but why not just turn it off with the handheld?
None of you guys will need it anyways, You guys don't drive in snow (yet!)
Agree that the car with the squiggly lines lit up in the dash. is annoying, but...
Just my contribution to that discussion.
You know there is a pretty smart guy on the S197 forum that rigged his traction control to turn off when he turned the ignition. It was still functional though, if you pressed the button. It wasn't disabled, just turned off when he turned the key. Only draw back was that if your car didn't fire on the first turn of the key, the next turn of the key turned it back on; then you would have to remember to hit the button. Maybe if he turned it all the way back to the off position before restarting would work? Anyways, I hate reaching over and turning it off everytime I start the car. I have the thread bookmarked at home because I was going to do it someday.
He had it set up to when you cranked the starter it sent a signal to the relay which the relay interpets as you pushing the button to turn off the TC. But if you had to crank the starter again it would send another signal to the relay which it would interpet as you pushing the button again, which would turn it back on. If you cranked the starter twice it is like pushing the TC button twice; turning it off and then on again. It was a cool set up with just the one draw back when you had to crank the starter twice.... teh fuk did you just say... REALLY?!?
Its BAD; REAL BAD...
If you cannot remember to hit the button... you have no business hitting the other button!

I would rather start the car and have to push the button to turn it on, than start the car and push the button to turn it off. Make sense? One less step 99% of the time.
Is taking that 1sec to turn off the TC that bad that you need to turn it off with the tuner. Sounds like alil laziness to me.
