It mainly happens when I get a little bit of a slide front or rear, sometimes both, but I am fine and in control. I am looking for a way to switch off all of the electronics, ABS is fine, but the traction control has to go. Anyone have experience with this?
I had an X5 and you could but it on the edge and just throttle steer for hours with out any interference. Two Porsche 911s and Two M3s all had stability control but it was refined and not intrusive. The 2010 Tacoma is such a pussy if there is a sight dip before a turn or decreasing radius turn the fun nanny kicks in for no reason...it is just too bad the Germans don't make pickups.
Otherwise good quality from Toyota... but a piss poor VSC attempt on their part. We have very curvy roads in the mountains here. Today the VSC kicked in going around a 55mph turn...always kicks in on right turns(not left?)...it pulled me into the on comming traffic...not cool!

PS The previous owner had the truck into the dealer 6 times for VSC issues and traded it so I found out later.
I'm thinking or trading it after one month and 4 visits to check and recalibrate the VSC.
