Advance Trac, Sport Mode and All disabled

27
0
So far I have used the Boss on track using Sport Mode ESP and TC. It have felt good to have a "safety belt" on in case of driver mistake. I have really only noticed the systems on the exit of some corners where the traction control have held back a too heavy gas pedal foot.

But last Sunday I decided to go without any systems and held the button down for 10(?)seconds and had the car entirely in my hands. I was driving a track I have been on before and feel comfortable with, plus a dry track without rain.

I have to say that the feeling of the car changed quite a bit and I also managed to shave off 1s of the track time! The feeling of having the care entirely in my hands and feet was really nice and from now on I will not use any systems unless there is rain or I´m on a new track.

Anyone else having similar experience?

I always run with everything disabled. In the past, the TCS has roasted rear brakes trying to control the car. Not sure how advancetrac would handle my on-track antics, I don't want any surprises at 100+ mph while cornering.

This. No nannies for me please.
 
My routine when I get in the car is to turn it off right away. On track its not even a question even in the rain.
 
TCS bad :eek:
