Traction control test
« on: October 26, 2013, 09:35:41 PM »
I have always wondered how well the traction control works and how fast it reacts.
Today, in my driveway covered in leaves, i tried to do a burnout.  The tire barely spun and the motor immediately tried to quit.  Pretty impressive.

How does the ABS pan out under the same test conditions ?  :005:

I accidentally tried out the TC at about 45 mph on the test ride. Pretty much a non event. I saw the gravel, expected the back end to step out and by the time I let off the throttle nothing had happened and I was past it.

I wasn't so ambitious. I just put it on the center stand, put in first and tried to rev.

I haven't deliberately put the TC to the test, but it's kicked in a couple of times accelerating smartly away from a stop and hitting tar snakes....
