hmm... TRAC is good to have on, i had an interesting experience last week... it started raining and i had my trac off, came up to a traffic jam and decided to pull a Uturn at a light, turn the wheel left to lock then nailed the throttle, spun the car around like a top - once i started to spin, i kept my foot down hoping to make it completely around, but when i started to drift right towards the curb i had to ease off to correct it before i did any damage... so the moral of the story is... be glad that its on, and have to turn it off, ... especially for those use to driving FWD cars as the rear end on this car is easy to let loose when in slippery conditions...Originally posted by rarjoon:
Is there a way to to set TRAC OFF as the default setting... Everytime I start up the IS the traction is engagaed automatically? help? I'd just like to use traction in the rain or bad weather or somn. Thanx!
'twice as fast' what do you mean? TRAC shouldn't affect acceleration in dry conditions (ie. sufficient grip).. in wet conditions TRAC should IMPROVE acceleration because it will reduce wheel spin...Originally posted by rarjoon:
My IS accelerates twice as strong with Trac OFF I dunno why? but it's true
