Question BA XR8 Traction Control

Has anyone had any problems with traction control.

Is this feature automatic as well as manual. Last night while overtaking on the outside lane of a 2 lane passing section the traction control will kick in (even though disabled/switched off) and the car will respond like it was missing, ie the traction control was kicking in, almost like transmission slipping or cluth slipping in a manual. I don't believe I should have to leave the traction control on all the time.

Have you got the settings correct. Traction control is turned on when there is no 'skidding wheel pic' on the dash, when it kicks in the 'skidding wheel' will flash on the dash, and then go. Traction control off is when the 'skidding wheel' is always lit on the dash.
