    SXI 1.8 T/C

    Can you still get the astra to spin etc even thought it has t/c? without doing the engine thing to make a switch.

    so the t/c only works when pulling away slowly? not when revving to 5k then dropping clutch?

    i assume its guna work when your pulling away fast. its not guna stop 100% wheel spin but it will reduce it, so it will make you pull away a bit faster.

    I think its also helps for control around

    Traction control is really there to control the wheel slip or loss of grip at speed. It will try to control wheel spin if you just dump the clutch and take off like an idiot, but as a safety function it will not cut power too much in case you are trying to scrabble your way of an oncoming 18 wheeler :shock:
