TPMS on the Strip

I have a second set of rims, to be fitted with drag radials. I wasn't going to bother with the TPMS, as they'll be low on air pressure as a rule. My question is whether that could affect launch control, traction control, or any of the other electronic aides to the rear wheels?

It doesn't matter if you use the TPMS or not. Everything else will work fine. The catch is that you will have one more thing lighting up on your dash after you lower your air pressure. It's just annoying to have to click the OK button repeatedly when you're trying to concentrate on the tree. I chose to install the the sensors in my spare wheels becuase I drive the car to the track with the wheels. If you have no sensors, a warning light will come on even though you have plenty of air. Unless you are installing slicks, and never intend to drive them on the road, I would suggest spending the money on the sensors.

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
My drag tune turns of the advance track the airbags every light is on. Doesn't effect my ability to focus on the tree.
