You mean how it shuts the system down when the tires break loose? Just be careful shutting off the control system, especially on wet roads. I've only got the 3.8 engine so not a lot of rubber burning going on here.

You probably already know this but you can fully defeat the stability and traction control by holding that button until you see the message displayed that they have both been defeated. I'm glad Hyundai put this feature in as my previous Genesis required a hardwire mod to achieve this. Together with Sport mode and you're set for some serious racing fun! Enjoy!

As you said, if we simply press the button, traction control is turned off. If we press and hold, that and stability control are turned off.

Traction control being off allows the tires to spin, but what does turning off stability control allow? (other than a convenient way to wrap your car around a tree)

There's a lot Stability control (ESC) can do and one of them is it can reduce engine power or operate the transmission to slow the vehicle down, like if it thinks the car is skidding. Due to the fact that stability control can be incompatible with high-performance driving, many vehicles have an override control which allows the system to be partially or fully deactivated. (from Wikipedia)

From the Equus manual: The ESC system is to stabilize the vehicle in cornering maneuvers. The ESC monitors your steering and driving. The ESC applies to a brake of an individual wheel and engage in the engine management system in order to stabilize the vehicle.

So in a racing situation you want both the Traction Control and ESC defeated and the tranny set to sport for the best performance this car offers.

The Equus does not have the driving dynamics for high performance driving....the steering, suspension and chassis are just not set for it
The Equus is a cruiser...be careful
Are you sure you would not be better with a BMW M?
