Afternoon everyone, I hope you all had nice weekends.
I’m about to do my 1st track day (weather permitting!), and I have a quick question about traction control.
As far as I can tell, I have these three options:
- Leave traction control fully enabled.
- Disable ASR (by one quick push of the ‘ESP OFF’ button).
- Disable ESP (by pushing and holding the ‘ESP OFF’ button for 5 or 6 seconds).
Being my first track day, and seeing how the weather is pretty horrendous at the moment, I’m leaning towards leaving traction control fully enabled – but I’m not sure of this is the best option to be honest?
Should I base my decision on the weather – as in ESP off on a dry track, and traction control left enabled on a wet and slippery track?
Finally, will disabling ASR or ESP stop the rear wheels from kicking in if the fronts lose traction, or should the rear wheels still get involved with either ASR or ESP disabled?
Sorry for the rookie questions, but I really don’t want to write-off my S3!
Thanks in advance for any advice,
