When is the proper time to disengage your traction control?

As example... Should I be in neutral, at a complete stop (5 speed) and then turn it off? Or can I be rolling and turn it off? Like cruising at 45 in 3rd or 4th and disengage it?

Not sure of it matters, but on a 2011...

Anytime, single press engages/disengages traction control.

Applying brakes anytime (moving or stopped) puts into "sport mode" on premium models.

While in park (for us autos), press and hold (5 or 10 seconds... Can't remember) completely disables advanced trac (traction and stability control).

You don't have all that stuff mentioned above. Just leave it off. Had mine turned off in the tune, was just annoying to me

I stand corrected! Although, the music coming from those Edelbrock mufflers keeps me pretty entertained!
