OK Bullit Heads
Can anyone enlighten me as to what TC Setting is best for All Around Normal Weather Driving on Paved Dry or Wet Roads.

Traction Control Switch Light on or off means TC On or Off. Scrutinizing the Owner's Manual has screwed up my brain waves.
I'm confused and one of these guys that always spends to much time making things harder than they really are.

All input is appreciated.

Joseph,

I MOVED this Thread to the Correct Area om IMBOC:

I think You (Joseph) will get more responses in this area of IMBOC (Below).

08/09 FAQ
Please submit your 08/09 Frequently Asked Questions, and Answers.



Just a Suggestion .............

Start the Bullitt and Leave the Traction Control (Alone) ..........

Meaning, Don't touch the Button TC.

Then it will do as it was designed to do ........

Help (Protect) you in case you get to Crazy in a Corner or something ........

After mine tried to kill me after turning mine stays off. I'll also note I do not drive in rain or snow. I suppose if you've never driven a car that has intentionally gotten loose in the rear leaving it on may be a good idea. If you know what to do in those case I think it is far better being off as it won't fight you when you try to reign in the car yourself. I also like kicking the back end out every now and then, especially on concrete.

Terry,

Your suggestion to not mess with the TC buttton is exactly what I needed to hear.

As to moving my thread to the correct area thanks . What area is it moved to?

I'm actually begining to get things down as far as working with the site.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Joseph,

You are in this part of the 2008/09 part of IMBOC.

See Below:

Threads in Forum : 08/09 FAQ



You originally were in the 2001 Part of IMBOC

So you were probably not going to get much input from the 2008/09 Members.

Some look at Threads over on the 2001 side but I don't think many do.

Just takes time to get Acquainted with a Site .........

Practice makes perfect :smile:

I never used to bother with the TCS system until recently when I had some annoying anomalies with the TCS "ON." Now I turn it off and like the personal and intuitive control I have of my Bullitt. Spirited driving is much more enjoyable as it reminds me of my days when I was still in uniform on patrol.:wink:

With that said, I would like to add that I was a police driving/pursuit instructor for 15 years of my 25 year career. Driving under precarious conditions, as well as teaching others to do this, was part of my job. I do not advise an inexperienced driver to operate their Bullitt in an unsafe manner; especially with the TCS off. :cool:

Yeah, Tiger, it was the weirdest thing with the handling of my Bullitt. During one of my pre-dawn cruises at 0h dark-thirty, I punched the accelerator on an onramp to gain access to one of the freeways. Bullitt began to slip sideways. That had not happened before. Shortly thereafter on another onramp, I noticed another unusual drift as the Bullitt engaged the slightly higher pavement of the freeway (recently repaved and there's that slight ridge between newly paved roadway and older onramp). Anyway it just seemed the TCS was not cooperating that day and I reached over and shut 'er off. I enjoy driving more with it off when I'm cruising and gettin' my foot in it, otherwise, it's on during heavy traffic, daily errand stuff. :smile:

That's the reason I posted this on another thread concerning TCS:

An observation....it appears that the traction control in the 01 Bullitt may be different than the one in the 08/09 Bullitts....i almost never engage the traction control...because when it is on there is too much of a grab from side to side....so...i leave my traction control off.....no slip.....no grab......
