Shutting down traction control????

Anyone know if you can just pull a fuse to disable the traction control? I was at the track yesterday and on one run I forgot to turn off the T.C. and it ruined my run. Would like to be able to turn it off at the track. Thanks.

Umm you know you can turn it off with the traction control button right? No need to pull a fuse. Simply pressing it turns off traction control. Holding it down while pushing the brake at a complete stop and it disables advancetrac which is a combination of traction control and stability control.

I think op is saying he wants to disable it the entire time he's at the track. Every time you start the car, the traction control resets and turns back on. It was a pita for me at the drift track. I'd shut the car off after a run and then start it up again before my next run and forget to press the button again. I clutch kick the first corner and lose power. I'm like **** **** ****! Hahaha!

Btw, advancetrac & traction control are two different settings. If you press the button once, you disable advancetrac. If you apply the brake and press the button for six seconds, it'll disable advancetrac & traction control.

As for op's question. I've never looked into a way to permanently disable the TC without it resetting once you shut the car off. Sorry.

Easiest way is to have your tuner disable it in your tunes

Easiest way is to pull the 5 amp cgeck circuit fuse in the passenger footwell panel. That kills all the nannies, incl abs. I do thus at the track. I have that circuit switched so I can turn it it off easily. It will set an instrument cluster signal lost code but. I have tech so I can clear it from the panel.

It can be disabled in the tune.

I personally would not want it disabled through tuning. This is a powerful car and if you intend to drive it in inclement weather, poor road conditions, why not just leave the nanny disabling for track days? There may just be that one moment, one day, on the road, when you might need the help.

I agree. Turning it off has become habit every time I start my car, but as soon as there's any type of inclement weather, it can be turned on again. Can't do that if your tune disables it. OP, if you use a different tune for your track days, maybe you can get TC disabled on that one, while keeping it enabled on your daily tune...unless you run the same tune all the time haha.

Simple solution, have a separate 'track-only' tune that you can load on track days. But then again, it may just be faster to pull the fuse than wait 5 minutes for the tune to load.

I don't have a tune in the car yet. I just want to be able to turn it off for the day.
