tc off for the 1/4 mile runs (not that it seems to matter much), otherwise its on all the time.

ive never felt the tc intervene (or seen the flashing light) on this car...at all...not once yet.

Yeah, it doesn't do much, even on my wheel spinner (FWD), which i kinda like. I'm fairly sure the system uses the brakes to try and limit wheel spin rather than closing the throttle plate like a lot of drive by wire cars.

ya the tc on both the 09 and 14 Rondos i had was bloody dangerous the way it just killed the power dead. First time it happened to you was a real learning experience if it was at a time when you didn't really wanna doddle around ya know?...'lest you get killed?...go car!!!

After that you learned to be much more careful not to get to boisterous...

well i got dusted today by a Hyundai Genesis 3.8 GT Coupe in a pull from about 20-80 mph. i barely hung with him to about 60 or so and then he started to motor away convincingly as that V6 started to wind up i guess. it also sounded quite nice, the V6 i mean, seeing as how I got to hear it full wail from behind .
