Sometimes you want to deliver power to all 4 to get out of something, for example sliding towards a light pole....traction control will cut power to some wheels and you'll just be sliding...

Eh, I never turn it off unless I'm playing. Bora said he turned it off whenever there was powder. That's what confused me.

I had mine turned off when it happened. I was going really slow down the icy part and then it broke loose. It started sliding and I turned on esp while sliding down the hill. It was an interesting experience.

Put all the weathertecs in. Front, rear and cargo.. I was expecting them to be a bit more awesome for the price. They front ones really should of been designed to go up further to offer more protection.
