    The first time I experienced TCS was on my newly ordered from the factory '98 T/A WS6 M6. It was a bumming experience to say the least. My foot was kicked off the accelerator pedal and most forward progress was halted. I can see using it in snow or ice, but in the south, it's useless and a pain in the neck. I can't remember how many times I got in, warmed her up and then wanted to take off like gang busters but forgot to turn off the TCS and get so ticked off in the process. I finally purchased a TCS override which turns it off on start up and never had to deal with it again. My 2000 has the same thing. Thank God for TCS override!!!

    It's actually dangerous in the rain and snow. I was on a steep hill in the rain, and some asshat glued himself to my back bumper. I get into the gas a bit, the TCS kicks in and pushes the gas up, and the car stalls(M6). I almost rolled back into the idiot. Here's my first tutorial on proper use of TCS.
    1)Get in car
    2)Start car
    3)Push TCS button once
