If I am not mistaken, the traction light on the speedo indicates an error with the traction control system, since it was deactivated while the car was started. I normally just turn it off after starting the car, yielding the one "DSC off" light.On Saturday 6/6, I had my second event in STF (first with coilovers & camber plates). I learned quite a bit about the car. My car has DSC, and I didn't realize pressing this button while the car was on only turned off stability control and not traction control (or vice versa?). Holding the button down, while starting the car turns both off and you get 2 more lights on the dash.
:klavergreg:. It was a chilly day, and everybody had 6 runs. I needed my first 2 runs to get used to the car. Runs 3-5 were all within .2 of each other. On my last run I put a few things together and ended up dropping another half second. I was happy with my driving, but I'm sure I left at least a second out there.
My car wasn't loose at all, but it rotated really well (predictably) with a little trail braking. It was a lot of fun, but I was wishing I had 15" wheels Lower CG and better gearing would have been great. The car is a lot of fun, but I'm just a rwd-whore.
My plan is to continue in STF this year until the Bridgestones cord. I'll probably sell off my suspension bits when the season ends. Either way, I'll try to keep this thread updated and share my fun/learnings.
I also say this because when I had electrical problems at the NJ pro, I got that traction light on the speedo, the power steering warning light and the abs light warning light when the battery started failing.
edit: that light indicates a DSC malfunction.
