Installing a Traction Control

So my Stang doesn't have Traction Control, and I've been advised to install one since my car loses control if I hit the gas pedal a little bit while it's raining.

Any ideas if it can be bought from some dealer, shipped and installed over here? I don't know what a traction control system is in the first place, to judge if it is possible to have it installed now or not.

It's not a fun ride at the moment

Any body's driving their 2005+ v6 normally, without TCS, while it's raining?

Re: Installing a Traction Control

What tires do you have?

The ones I could locate in my country so far are:

Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport
Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684
Michelin Symmetry

Which one would you recommend?

All are original 215-65-R16. I can't afford new rims now.

Tc won't help too much it just will stop spinning when you lose control. A tlock will be better for handling and tires

Re: Installing a Traction Control

OK try using a lighter touch on the throttle.
I run a V6 on ice here in Alaska. Initially with TC and the 7.5 diff I had some moments, but not a lot. Sitting in an intersection not moving because the wheel had started to spin and the TC had hit the brakes. Not good, but if I backed off and tried a gentler touch all went well. Replaced entire back axle with an 8.8 from a GT (takeoff) improved this and the traction control works really well.
On Pirelli's I have also GT takeoff wheels & these, they slip on white lines in the wet and are getting replaced for the winter with Studded Hankooks.
