2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Traction Control Defeat
March 22, 2012
Our long-term 2011 Ford Mustang GT's 5.0L V8 pumps out 412 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. So you had best know what you are doing if you decide to defeat the traction control. You can easily get the rear end to step out even with the traction control on. And last weekend it rained a ton in Los Angeles, so I didn't touch the traction control switch, of course.
What about you? Do you frequently (or ever) defeat the traction control?
During what conditions, and how does your car behave?
