If there's a fuse you can pull to disable TC, I'm not aware of it.

There is a wire you can cut and install a toggle switch, but I wouldn't recommend it for a number of reasons.

There are always plenty of Z Automotive Tazers available used, and it's not like they wear out. Get one, they'll allow you to do a lot more than just disable TC.

The tazer is about your only way to cut the nannys off. I have a 2012 300c and this is the only way I can act out a bit in my car. I will say that sometimes If I do a donut it freaks my electronics out. Never been able to figure out why. Sometimes it will throw an engine code and get stuck in 3rd gear. Sometimes a restart helps and other times I have to reprogram the ecu to correct it. But I will say turning off everything with the Tazer really means turning off everything. Traction, stability and ABS and maybe others. I boiled my brake fluid on a hard mountain drive with the abs off so I no longer turn this off during those rides. Also upgraded brakes and fluids.

Will say the tazer does open a few fun things on our cars. If you can find a used one its worth it. Its expensive for something that does not increase performance. It will unlock all the SRT pages. This can be seen in the evic and the unconnect screen. The best feature though is the line lock. Press 2 buttons on the steering wheel, pump the brakes twice and it locks up just the front brakes allowing you to roast them until you let off the steering wheel buttons. Overall the Tazer is nothing but a sh*ts n giggles toy but I have enjoyed it. especially the srt pages. Good luck.

Don't understand why anyone would treat their car like that, but each to their own. I must say though, that is one fine looking vehicle.
Appreciate it woocares. I maintain the car every chance I get but also did not buy a rwd v8 and put all this money into it to drive it like a commuter car. Not saying I do dumb stuff all the time but she does make me giggle more often than not. I leave the donuts and burnouts to the rare occasions where I can safely pull them off. And I don't have the money for new rear tires like that.

If I had the V8 I might drive do the same. In the meantime, my 6 makes me giggle occasionally, or I just giggle easier. (loved your giggle comment)

I don't know if this will work, but if you have the push button start - hold the start button while holding the TC button when starting the car, I dont remember how long, but mine shows on the dash that it disabled all systems - power cut, plus the auto brakes. Might work for you.

Yep 275/40/20. The Drag DR rims are 9' and I can only get the stock 245 on the front. Front tire sits millimeters from upper control arm. Really wanted to go with a square stance but oh well. And thanks.

How to get the melted rubber off the underside of the rear fenders?

Asking for a friend
Hard work and determination. The same way that rubber got there. Honestly if its enough to bother you I would say a small plastic putty tool.

Can I ask why you sold the wagon? That is like a bucket list car for me. I have a sweet spot for wagons.
