Gs300 Mk1 Traction Control

Recommended Posts

Hi I know that the UK cars dont have traction control unlike the USA ones. I ask the question though!

Does the UK car have the fixings to install the traction control? I have seen ECU's for the traction control system for sale in the US, could I just install this into the apropriate vacant slot on a UK car?

My guess is most likely no, otherwise I am thinking about getting Racelogic TC when I have saved a few pennies up hopefully before we get all the rain and snow soon. Has anyone got any experience of TC on a mk1 gs300 sport and could offer some advice! Its the main family car now as I am getting rid of the 300zx not practical in bad weather and nor is the GS300 as I have found out and I will worry once the snow comes, I will stick with it though as I have found them such good cars, everyone I know likes it, I opted for the Mk1 Sport over the Mk2 and I dont regret it for a second, just want to look after it as much as I can now though. I plan to keep it for quite a few years to come. Whats your vie :) w?

Hi,

There is a factory TC on my Aristo.

TBH like maneesh says you would be better off saving up for the race logic one,You can adjust how much TC you want.

The factory TC is Good on my car,but cuts in and bogs the car down to much for my liking in dry conditions.

TC is definately on my list to get, though with christmas I dont have the wonga at the moment to invest in it. I came off a roundabout yesturday near a petrol station and accelerated a second early, lest say I am glad the road was two lanes wide in my direction, all was ok but drifting sideways steering from the rear when you dont want to was not my idea of a quiet drive home. I have had that problem quite a bit in the past with my 300zx and you have to treat it smoothly but I didnt expect the lexus to be quite as bad. I drive really really carefully now in this weather! The exhibit did get a few college kids waiting as the bus stop cheering from the side of the road! If only they knew it was not on purpose, I felt like a real arse, you can get caught out so easily if you are not careful. I know what I will be saving my pennies for now!
