Trust me - traction control in it's primitive ford made state is something you don't want on your car. It really sucks!!!

The BA traction control is pretty hopeless too. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

i have an AUII monty ghia... traction control is useless. the amount of times my little "loss of TC" light flashes is unbelievable. not talkin em up, but my workmates SSZ's traction control works a dream, never seen it lose grip in 3 years

Probably not worth putting in Traction control if the car is worked, because the system is designed to handle the stock tune and not anytihing higher, i might be wrong but thats what I have heard.
