Sport mode can come in handy, I went auto X for the 1st time last week and I tried everything on, everything off, and sport mode... Sport mode was good enough for my inexperience and gave the car a good balance in a road course setup

Yeah it just scales everything back. If I recall, the owner's manual tells you exactly what effects it has.

With your foot on the brake pedal, just press the traction control button twice

If nothing was hurt, then a 360 is something awesome, since you can play it off like it was on purpose - a 180 on the other hand, not so much.

I can think of a way to pull off a 180, 2 lane street, or lane closest to oncoming, and boom! 180, and your going the other way with traffic!

I've always kept mine on full, I've thought about switching to sport, but I think I'll save that for a drag strip.

you press the button twice to go into sport mode, I'm not sure what once does, hold down the brake and the TCS button for about 5-8 seconds TCS is disabled. It's all in that 1 button.

That's what I meant. If you press the TC button twice, it will go into sport mode, which basically scales the TC back to only activate in more extreme circumstances

oh ok yea I didn't know that if you press it twice it goes in to sport mode I just try to go off the feel and what the dash said when I pressed it .. I feel like with everything on is for beginners traction control off is for intermediate and everything off you'll unleash the beast and is for advanced users!!!! LOL

These cars have traction control and esc(electronic stability control). Hit button once and tc is off, esc is on. Hold brake and hit button twice is sport mode. Hold brake and hold button for five seconds and everything is off.

I've forgotten this, what does the ESC do?

Electronic Stability Control (ESC), also referred to as electronic stability program (ESP) or dynamic stability control (DSC), is a computerized technology [1][2] that improves the safety of a vehicle's stability by detecting and reducing loss of traction (skidding).[3] When ESC detects loss of steering control, it automatically applies the brakes to help "steer" the vehicle where the driver intends to go. Braking is automatically applied to wheels individually, such as the outer front wheel to counter oversteer or the inner rear wheel to counter understeer. Some ESC systems also reduce engine power until control is regained. ESC does not improve a vehicle's cornering performance; instead, it helps to minimize the loss of control.

Thanks, I had that kick in getting out if a gas station... I felt tires spin, slight slip, and loose gravel flew...

When it applies the brakes "for you" do your brake lights in the back turn on?

I hate it when that happens... Once my moms went crazy and she sent a message meaning to say cucumbers... It put condoms... And another time, it put ghetto when she didn't say anything remotely close to that
