Im sure not many here know this, but not only can you turn off traction control, but stability control as well. I am not responsible for damages you incur in your ability or lack there of, in controlling your vehicle. Personally i drive with them off, as all my prior vehicles did not have either function, its what I'm used too. Also great for those track times is scca and nasa races. Too turn off stability control, press and hold down the traction control button for about 5 seconds. If done correctly, it will denote on the screen that stability control is off.
