Traction control is quite positive in the snow, but I don't do track days in the snow. When the TC engages at the track, it tends to kill the power by about 50% briefly. Many cars of that era would kill the power 100% for at several seconds, so it could be worse. Compared to modern TC though, it sucks!

My car doesn't have any buttons for TC, so I don't know how I can turn it off. The good news is that I really have to get the tire spinning up a lot to get the TC to engage, so I can normally use some throttle control to keep it from engaging. The bad news is that the TC operation isn't consistent; sometimes it doesn't engage, other times it kicks in very easily.
