Why Traction Control is a Smart Thing to Leave ON


Steve Sutcliffe from Autocar UK tries a little experiment involving a Lamborghini Gallardo and their ESP Traction Control system. Like many cars today, you have the ability to turn the traction control on and off. This can be a lot of fun when you’re a good enough driver to control the car on a racetrack. But no matter how great of a driver you are it’s safe to say you should turn it back on when you decide to drive home.

Why should you? Well in this video, Steve decides to attempt some emergency maneuvers you may encounter on the highways. Find out what happens when he plays around with ESP on and off.
