Personally, so far I am not a fan of all the "engineering" that went in to "traction control" on these new trucks. I grew up where there were no salt trucks or snow plows. The good Lord put the snow there and He took it off. I learned what to do if the vehicle fishtailed or started sliding. With this new fangled stuff, I have no idea how to react. Brakes start chattering when the wheels start spinning. You can't get enough wheel speed to make it up a slick hill. Now, I turn of the traction control when I get in, and if it is slick, I put it in 4L to get rid of the ESC too.

Before long the engineers will take all the driving out of driving and let the vehicles take over.
