    Traction Off Button

    Hello All,

    Does anybody else have the traction off button in your Mirage and, at least with visual on the dash cluster, isn't doing anything? Just curious, maybe it's just for decoration.

    Cheers

    Nope. To test it, turn it off on grass and it will spin the wheels.
    Mine turns off and on fine.

    You're doing it wrong then. I can pull out of an intersection and drift mine. Did it the other day on accident but as soon as we get some rain (Lubbock, Tx joke as it rarely rains here) I will be doing it some more. Traction control is mainly beneficial and sometimes a problem creator when skimming across water surface more than anything else.
