    I've read a few things on here about how apparantly just pressing the TC off button only disables ASR then holding it for 5/6 seconds also diables ESP fully.

    My S3 is 57 plate, i've read the manual and it says nothing about holding the button.

    When I press it I get TC/ASR off.
    Hold it and nothing happens until eventually it turns back on.

    Is it just the 8P2s which you can hold down to fully turn it off and the 8P1 you just press it once to turn it all off?


    Thanks.

    Mine only does the 1 press thing too, holding it for longer does nothing when I tried

    Unless it does it but doesn't tell you? :think:

    I just wondered that's all. I've been playing with it at night on some big empty roundabouts, it certainly doesn't feel like there's any TC still active.
    It's when launching it feels like it. TC off, 5,000 revs and it bogs down still. Sometimes it doesn't. I can only presume it's down to practice. Also I think I read it has a torque limiter on the manuals which is a bit of a party pooper. Still keeps the standard clutch a bit healthier lol
