i got a 99 intrepid ES w/ traction control.. it finally rained here in vegas a couple weeks ago so i thought i would have some fun and went out w/ a buddy and just roasted these front wheel bad boys up... i wanted to know if this thing had posi traction so i told my buddy to step outside and watch which tire/s spin and he told me they both did.. i spun them w/ trac. control off... i dont think this Front wheel drive boat has posi traction so im guessing its just the traction control kicking in? or am i wrong... any answers.. thx
And traction control doesn't make it posi traction either. It just tries to apply some braking power to the wheel with the least traction, the one that's spinning, this adds load to the one side and some torque will be sent to the opposite side.
Unless you FULLY understand an open differential it will be hard to understand how traction control works.
