Yep. TC is fine for people that don't have instinctive reactions. But for those of us that actually have a little driving skill, it fucks us over. I did the same thing in the Expo. A lot. Lol. Like I said about the passat, though, it seems a lot better designed. It doesn't correct too much, and it actually lets me start and stop without cutting all the power and locking up the brakes. Lol.

See the passat seems to work with me, and even if I fight it, it still keeps me straight. Not like Ford's version. Lol.

The downside, it WILL NOT let me get that car sideways. Lol.

It cuts power to individual wheels when it senses them start to spin. On the passat it even brakes and accelerates individually to keep the car straight. It's ridiculous. Lol.

cuts power to certain wheels in attempt to regain traction, but fords traction control is the internet explorer of all traction controls.
