If you get one just be sure to turn off all of the traction control stupid computer stuff so you can be in the next video.

It's amazing how many crash videos you see coming out of car shows/cruises

I just can't figure it out !!!!!

I once had a Corvette and did go to a few Corvette events as well as belonged to a Corvette club.
Most of the guy's that own a Corvette will turn off the traction control every time they get into their car.
Then you can see exactly what happens when it is all turned off.
I have tracked as well as drag raced my 1998 Vette and just always left the controls turned on. I never had a problem because it does work really good to prevent some of the stuff you see on this video.
I asked a guy one time why he always turned his TC off and he told me the TC robs so much power he felt he was driving a Vega with it on. He totaled his Corvette at deals Gap running the Dragon. DUH !

I wonder how many Mustang GT owners turn off the TC and crash their cars.

Yeah people just don't understand how quick something can happen with as much power as these cars make.

I turn traction control off in rental vehicles in foul weather when alone and if I had a Mustang GT or Corvette after some time behind the wheel I would turn off traction control if alone. With a passenger I try to be more considerate about their safety.

My traction control is turned off permanently through my tune. I don't like how it feels, all the lagging and studdering from the car.

Plenty of fools do this showing off in their Mustangs as well. Too much power and not enough common sense.

I've seen this happen in many cars. I've seen idiot kids in civics (admittedly the power isn't the problem then it's usually retarded driving), mustangs, corvettes, all of it.

I thought about deleting my traction control since i always turn it off. I just ended up turning it off in my tune. I drive better with it off than on.
