    Do you race with Traction control on or off?

    I have an 02 WS6, auto, BG ram air, slp box, k&N air filter, and Dynomax cat back and QTP cutout. What do you guys do?

    Also thinking about add Pacsseter headers and ORY, will this give me a good bump in power? THanks

    I don't have TC, but most will tell you to turn it off.

    And since you're are an auto, Torque Converter first.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    slow you down a lot! i left it on and lined up, dead stop on an open road against an auto SS, and that TCS totally bogged me down by like 5 cars! Definatly run with it off.

    True.
    I have TCS and when I first got my car I raced with it on for a bit. but then I got used to turning it off. Now I race with it off. It takes time but eventually "You learn to control the pow wa "

    The only time that I find TCS remotely useful is when I'm driving in the rain.
