Re: Can i ditch traction control somehow? (JimGTIVR6)

Well, isn't the "traction control" in question merely strategic computer controlled use of the ABS system? If so, then your question MrJazzBlue would be "can i disable ABS?" http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Traction Control...ABS...i didn't think they had anything to do with each other. I didn't know that the car started braking when you lost traction?

From what I've read, on your car the "traction control" is really the ABS computer applying the brakes, and not actually the power being rerouted from one wheel to another. For that, you'd want a LSD. Then you wouldn't have to disconnect your ABS, because the traction control wouldn't be necessary, as the wheels would slip much much less.
