I just took the AU2 Fairmont out and had to do some driving on gravel roads, thought I would take to chance to see how the traction control works on the new car compared to the old (another AU2) as expected no change and I just wanted to say how average I think the traction control is on these cars, I think if you have a car with traction control the system should retard the engine before the 2 or 3 seconds it takes to kick in, then it does the job for about 5 seconds then it's gone again and it's redline with the wheels spinning freely again. When it's actually retarding it's great, just takes too long to kick in IMO, what do the rest of you think?
ABS on the other hand is bloody brilliant.
