always off, its a stupid system really in the Altezza's doesnt really manage the traction well. leave it on in the wet if you worried. always off apart from that :)

I turn mine off as soon as I get in the car. It's so annoying around town. The LSD is enough TRC for me :lol:

You can wire it up so it's off all the time. I've been meaning to give this a go but haven't got around to it

It's not the best, but it has it's uses. If you hit an unexpected patch of oil or ice, especially on a bend and you aren't concentrating, it may be the difference between spinning out or catching it again. So on for cruising around and off when you want to really move. :)

Mine is always on unless I fancy a change for what ever reason. Im usually sat in traffic so dont see the point me having off. When I do have it switched off I do find the light slightly distracting.....

I run with mine on mainly as a bit to much of right foot and the back of mine gets very liverly quickly what ever the road conditions :shock: :lol: :lol:

I must say that I've got a power fc fitted which has made a difference over the standard ecu , I used to find that with the old ecu it would just kill the power but the power fc doesn't seem to let you put any more power down if that makes sense

but in wide open spaces off off off 8)
