I having been driving a little low slung FWD car in the latest WA weather and found I do not know how drive with traction control enabled. I was having trouble navigating 12-18" deep snow until I turned it off and then was able to get everywhere. I did "cheat" one day when there was 18" slush on the roads and pulled out the 4wd truck, but I also found I could drive it better with traction control disabled. Both reduced my ability to keep momentum by adjusting the amount wheel spin for maximum forward motion. It seems that traction control is only concerned about keeping all the wheels spinning at the same speed without regard to actual movement. I'm glad I can disable this "safety" technology but is there a way to drive with it enabled when traction is at a minimum? I couldn't even get out of the reverse slope driveway with it enabled.
