Greetings all. As a new member to this forum, i just wanted to say hello. A few days ago, i read a post, not sure if it was this forum, on how to disengage the traction control completely on the C230K Coupe. If anyone has information on how to do this, please post instructions. Thanks.

For all who are interested, i've found the instructions on how to disengage the traction control completely. I'm posting them in case anybody likes to drift their car as i do.... hehe. BTW, I DON"T RECOMMEND DOING THIS ON PUBLIC ROADS ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE INEXPERIENCED AT DRIFTING..... have fun:

How do I disabling Traction Control completely?

To start, the key must be removed from the ignition.
Insert the key and turn to position 1.
Immediately press and hold the trip odometer reset button until the instrument cluster beeps. There is no visual message, only an audio beep. Be patient, this takes around 40 seconds.
Press the lower menu button (it looks like two sheets of paper, the one with the writing in the background behind the blank one)
Press the up arrow button.
Press the "+" sign to disable the Traction System (turn "ON" test mode)
Start the engine, the traction system is now disabled.
To return to normal, remove the key and restart the engine. The traction control warning should no longer be in the cluster. If it is, shut the engine off and remove the key again. Then insert the key and turn to position 1. Note that the DYNO test screen is displayed immediately. Push the "-" button to enable the traction system (turn "OFF" test mode)

Note : When you first turn the key to position 1, ESP DYNO Test screen pops up, then after 1-2 seconds it may disappear while faults are displayed. If you weren't fast enough in pressing the "-" button before codes were displayed, just wait until all codes cycle by, then the ESP DYNO Test screen will reappear.

How does it effect wheel spin?
Have you done anything else to your C230K
How is your car driving in the snow and do you use snow tires(I do)
