Peter, I have an item called a Chip Daddy installed on my car, when I start the car the Chimp Daddy turns the traction control off for you. If I want it to be on then I have to hit the TC button. The reason for this chimp is most people find that the rear brakes wear out because the TC feature is applying rear brake more often than you think.
This is from Chimp Daddy:
Chimp Daddy LLC works hard to make devices which automate manual processes that otherwise you would have to do manually all the time. We call these “Chimps”. Why continually perform a manual operation yourself when you can get a Chimp to do it for you, right? The Traction Control Chimp is a traction control switch inverter. It defaults your vehicles traction control to “Off” every time you turn the ignition on. The Traction Control Chimp has a built in delay of twenty seconds before the traction control circuit is actuated and turned off. This delay is important because it accounts for possible hard starting conditions. It also gives the vehicles electrical system a chance to power up and
accept the traction control state change.
I also run 18's with stock springs and drag bags installed with only 8 pounds of air pressure. On cold days you are not going to hook up the stock tires, period! In the summer I run some Nitto 275 wide 17" 555R tires and they will help with the launch big time. Sure if I jump on the gas and drop the clutch they will go up in smoke. It is learning that 2000 rpm launch with the Nittos makes for a heck of a launch.
