Why would you want to disable Traction Control?

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?

Are people getting stability mixed up with traction?

Braking a spinning wheel has got to be good, no?

We sorted it out anyways the traction control or stability control didn't like the dyno so we had to disable it.

I actually have made a video showing how it can be better for you offroad.

Interested to see it.

From my understanding, disabling traction control leaves you with fully open diffs and seeing as the Triton isn't a flexy wrangler, it needs all the help it can get to keep power on the ground and not in the air.

Here's a video I was watching earlier, while cruising the pajero forums, a bloke is having troubles with his pajero not activating traction control:

Shows how easy something with open diffs can get stopped.

The theory that the triton will brake a spinning wheel to transfer drive is crap I have (numerous times) been on a slight ascent at an angle and a rear wheel will spin forever with no drive to the other side the only way out is to reverse back and pick a flatter line !

Well that suggests you may have a fault Jack.

Traction control is an evolution of ABS, using the same sensors.

During braking, a locked wheel is released to allow controlled rotation to maintain steering and a vehicles direction.

ASC/ESC uses individual brakes to help prevent a vehicle spinning out

While Traction control should attempt to get drive to wheels with sufficient road grip. The only way to achieve this with an open diff is to brake the spinning wheel. Its probably not going to lock it but apply resistance to force drive to the opposite side of the diff. Its almost like an exo LSD.

The electrickery seems to be a hindrance off road when a driven axle is spinning more than a set level over the passive one, then power is reduced to prevent uncontrolled wheel spin. I assume the boffins are mainly concerned with driving on bitumen. :lol:

On cars (rear wheel drive) with open diffs you can sometimes get yourself out of a slippery spot by lightly applying the handbrake to achieve a similar result.
