Seen this on here somewhere, still appropriate.
What did I do to my Supra...Starting to see mirages of my car, it's been too long!

So there is a setting for this - it is off by default.

My thought process was that it was probably never going to activate but that it might save me from doing something boneheaded one day. The issue with my driveway is that its only 3-4 feet long (townhouse) and it's kinda steep on one end - under normal use I never actually go up the steep part - there was no way going up this part was going to hurt the car at all. The car did try to warn me a lot & it was beeping, highlighting the area that it thought I was going to hit (on the backup cam), and then the beep became a solid tone before the braking.
This has happened to some folks with BMWs too -- the system gets tricked by steep driveways and/or driveways with stone walls and will slam on the brakes. One guy I know couldn't get in his driveway until he turned off the system! We googled it and turns out it affects many people.

So I'm going to get another dyno in today, this time on a Dynojet. Then I'm going by a shop that focuses on European cars, wanna see if they can get the Litchfield tune.

I cannot for the live of me get this car to drift. Am I missing something??? I have it in sport mode with the one click of the traction control to turn it off and still can’t seem to “throw it” like some of these folks do.

Turn off the safety button as well?

Gotta hold down the traction control for several seconds. It will say dsc inactive or something along those lines.

Sometimes my phone likes to disconnect, and the car won't find it at all, which drives me nuts. And sometimes the doors won't lock/unlock from the handle. No idea what causes that, either.

You need to do a long press/hold of the DSC button to turn it fully off. Just 1 press still leaves traction control on, just not as intrusive.
