...I'd like to disable it because more often than not it's an annoyance. If the tires actually do start to break loose when I want them to, I'll let off the throttle a tad. It was the same with my Z/28...I always switched that ASR off.
I ask about that damn oil cooler because it sprang a leak awhile back and I band-aided it with JB weld. Ever since then my oil consumption has been way up (2-4 quarts per 1,000mi.) and I actually see smoke (TONS) on WOT. I just want to believe it's not worn out rings (from when I overheated the engine). Back then, when they did the head gaskets, they saw nothing visably wrong with the rings. But it could possibly have been too miniscule at the time.
Maybe we are not speaking the same language. With T/C enabled but not engaged, you will have first gear starts. When it enages, it will apply the brakes to stop wheel spin and eventually disable cylinders to further control wheel spin if neccassary. When you disable T/C, you allow the wheels to spin. This feature is intended to help extracate you from deep snow. If this case you are relegated to second gear starts so as to reduce wheel spin and help extracate you rather than enhance wheel spin with first gear enabled, thereby digging your self deeper into the snow. Does that make sense, or did I just muddy the water a little more.
