I have track key software and using the track key:
** On a track I have never driven before or if it is a cold first session, I use the advance trac setting (while not moving, hold brake pedal and push the traction control button twice). I find this allows the car to get a bit loose but noticed it does kick in if the tires begin slipping/spinning too much.
** Once I know a track and it is warm, I go fully disabled (while not moving, hold brake pedal and push and hold traction control button until TCS slip light comes on).
Let me just state that I have tracked for a while so I feel pretty comfortable with car control.
DD GT3 RD said:^ on a side note I was always told my teachers and pros to learn on street tires then move to sticker tires like and R comp then slicks. I've heard it's not good to jump right into slicks. This will also allow you to learn what the car is doing at slower speeds plus you get more feedback from the tires opposed to a slick which can just let go (on or off). Then you can keep your TC off.
Ill drive with it off but ill put it in sport mode too on a fast track like big willow so I can gain confidence pushing my speeds then turn it off.

LS110 said:If keeping the sport mode or the entire Advance Trac system on can save my butt, as I can think of a few times it has done that for me, what are the advantages of turning it off?
LS110 said:I have had a number of cases where I am a bit heavy on the throttle, but not OC, and have felt the car bog for a second, perhaps applying brake. Is this one of those cases where having it off would let me drive through that at a higher speed without the TCS trying to correct it for me?
