    Default failed on the rollers

    cant shut the tc down on the rolling road. im not happy at all. every time the opperater tryed to do a run either the tc kicked in or the car went into limp mode, both of which stopped it comming on boost so couldnt get a propper read out. it managed 163bhp with no boost but frankly thats cr*p. does anyone know whats going on? i need to get this sorted so i can get it maped

    This has happened before at r/roads,it's the way certain Vecs and Signums are set up,no t/c is not an option!

    the only thing you can hope for is that the tc switchs off. thats what mine does if on a rr and as soon as driven again it switches on again

    If it's like the Mk4 Astra, pulling the fuse for the ABS kills the TC. On the Mk4 Astra the one fuse kills the power steering, the ABS and the Traction Control.

    Have you thought about fitting a T/C switch? (not to sound patronising).
