thats what traction control does... when you are losing traction it kills power so you can gain traction. if you are ever trying to hit it turn it off. you might get wheelspin but the car will never kill the power.

yup, might as well just never turn it on if u ever plan on having any fun. its really only usefull in some road racing applications, or if its snowy out.

I used to keep mine turned off in the programming all the time, until last winter when it actually snowed here, and I got stuck at work in the Mustang. Stopped, put the traction control back on, and made it home easily. Before I turned it on, I couldn't even take off from a dead stop in 2nd gear, I'd just sit and spin.

Unless you have ice or snow, traction control is your right foot. I'm enormously happy I don't even have it in my car, but I also live in florida, the only ice is in the cooler keeping the beer cold.
