Traction control video..

Apologies if this has been posted before but I found it mildly interesting on the dynamic settings of the various traction controls..

So really, it's just down to allowing different levels of slip before the brakes apply and force traction onto the wheel(s) with grip; assuming some surfaces would be better with slip than others?

Also, is that a wheel nut missing R/O/S and F/N/S?

not just that - the throttle response is also different, and IIRC, the engine power output is increased in sand.

Great video and clear proof a difflock is really not needed Razz ?

All a locker would give you (besides a whole in the wallet) is immediate drive across both wheels rather than waiting a few seconds for the cars computer to recognise a no traction on one or more wheel situation. I can live with that..

If you want to see the difference in throttle response in an auto find a steep hill select low 3rd and rock crawl, hold car on hill stationary with the throttle, DONT alter throttle but switch terrain response to sand and engine speed suddenly increases and car drives up the hill, D4 almost shoots up the hill
