    well you gotta know how it works to know why we dont like it, it engages the brakes and reduces throttle position, therefore if we run our cars at the track and start to get a little wheel slip (not a huge problem) with the tc on we will experience undesired braking and throttle decrease

    yep, never heard of a ws6 that didn't come without traction control, might want to check the dealer codes on the inside of the door to make sure its a real ws6

    Is there a certain way to race with an a4(like break tourque a little) or should you just nail it? Thanks for the help, i just wanna get the most out of it.

    You should start a new forum for that Q. But I've always used break torque. its the way to go. My opinion.

    yeah on stangs its a little bit different. i think when the tires start to spin the engine will cut power to them by reducing the flow of fuel.

    TCS, what good is that for?!?!?!

    If its on, its because I died driving it!
    Kinda like ABS I disable that really quick too, the system is not good enough from the factory.

    I don't have traction control, but have owned cars with it. Definitely turn it off.
