You can hold the button and it will somewhat disable it, but it will not be fully disabled and has the ability to step back in - ask anyone who tracks their car what their rear brake pads look like after a few sessions if they use the above method. All the nannies can only fully be turned off in the tune itself, and your dash lights up like a Christmas tree. However, thats not really the point of this thread, i just wanted to clear things up.

Well, since you have an MPT tune as well, you can check with them too and we can compare responses. Always good to have a backup

How about disabling it by pulling fuse to Electronic stability control?

What about Diehard's post #26 concerning the instructions in the Owners Manual? Just curious, thanks.

MPT Response to adaptive shifting.

OK, here's the skinny from Ken the lead calibrator at MPT:

"All of our tunes already have this function built in. I can't/won't go into detail as to the "problem" that this 47 fuse pull is supposed to resolve, and how we have fixed it. But pulling the fuse is unnecessary on any of our tunes, and is largely just internet bench racing."

I'm good to go

Haha one of my buddies, Jeff, calls me Huck Finn, says i got nasty homeless people feet since im always working on the car barefoot. Unless its like a big job where there's risk of stepping on or dropping something, im barefoot. Too damn hot in south Texas to waste time with shoes.

Hey guys just an update, after pressing the traction control button to turn it off, the car definitely feels more responsive when gunning from coming out a corner ect.

It does feel somewhat still restricted, slightly.

I will be contacting MpT, hopefully they can change that option for me so the traction is entirely off.

I originally had on a 93/race tune on when i felt this problem. I switched it to stock and change it to an 87/street tune but still felt the problem.

It doesnt feel like a mechanical issue whatsoever, no odd transmission shift ect. Felt computer related.

Thank you guys for the help. Solution was all in the push a button.

The lights on your dash will be on 24/7, it looks like a christmas tree. They may not do it, they were even hesitant to remove it on our (road) race tune, i had to call Mike and explain our situation and what was going on.

_shameless plug_ it was at that time I asked Mike about E85 and he offered their 50/50 tune which is pretty nice, i recommend checking it out for those with access to E85.

I wish that it were so simple to eradicate advancetrac as installing a tune. The stability control and traction control live in the ABS module, and it has to be replaced with the race car module to get rid of it. You can turn it off, but it can turn itself back on for no good reason.

Well with this method (hold down the button for 5 seconds at a stop with my foot on the brake) I can light up the tires anytime no problem and potentially wrap my car around a tree, so that's good enough for me lol.

This is part of my startup every time I get in the car (turning off AdvanceTrac, not wrapping the car around the tree). Start car, Turn on Radar Detector & CB, then disable traction control and AdvanceTrac. Now, I realize that AdvanceTrac can do things that I as a driver cannot (such as torque vectoring) and can react quicker than my middle aged reflexes allow. However, after learning in and driving old-fashioned front engine, rear wheel drive vehicles for the better part of three decades, I find the nannie electronics irritating and intrusive. It is the one thing that I don't like about my Mustang. Shoot, my Ducati even lets me turn the ABS completely off if I so desire! However, I will give this to Ford - AdvanceTrac does work better and smoother than that goofy Stabilitrak in my '09 half-ton... and the Stabilitrak "off" button is just for looks, since it only stays inactive for a minute or so and then it's right back making the truck do things that I do not want it to do. OK, sorry about the "Back in my day we didn't have nannie electronics - and we liked it!" rant...
