as for the tcs i tryied it when it was rainning to see and it does work first u hear a tire burn and u try to do it again and it doesnt do it got better traction but it was movin slow as hell
almost certain. the VSA uses the traction control system and brake system to do its work. there's some Accelerometers and yaw sensors in the equation too, but the most important parts of the system that have a service life are the ABS Sensors. cleaning them might even do the trick. it's likely one of them is faulty.
The reason is if you go into a skid the VSA sends that brake force to certain wheels, but it doesn't modulate it, it send it there and the ABS has to keep the wheel from locking up.
If you've got at least one good rear ABS sensor the TCS will work, but not optimally...ideally it shouldn't have let the tire spin more than a half second before it cut power. it shouldn't spin for more than a SPLIT second, and definitely shouldn't react only after you've let off the throttle once before. Not even the G2's traction control system is that lazy.
