FPV GT Traction control question?

I was looking at the FPV site again today for the millionth time and decided to read in detail the safety fatures. It said that traction control was standard on the GTand GT P.

Which brings me to my question, Would anyone know if the traction control is able to be overridden/turned off ? Could traction control be turned off in previous T series? and last of all would this mean that the GT and GT P are not fitted with L.S.D.

I thought that vehicles fitted with L.S.D. did not qualify for traction control.

Can anyone shed some light.

I could not imagine Ford would fit convention slip to a 290kw car anyway, and imagine the waste of tires if you turned off the traction control.

Reason I ask is that (you probably could have guessed anyway) I obviously want to be able to get deliberate wheel spin but don't want just one wheel spinning and trashing one tire while doing it.

On the options brochures they say you can't option LSD and Traction Control together. However they didn't footnote that the Xr6?, XR6T and XR8 had them both as standard. GT and GT-P should fall into the same catagory.

LSD would be the better option, because you can get the car sideways better with one, and you can lay big twin wheelers everywhere, if you are into that stuff....
