Before you read my answers, know that OP's truck is a Canada spec 08 Sport. All bets are off. Barely anyone knew about the pre-2009 US spec VSC trucks until I created my thread.

Is there no VSC button in pre - 09 Tacoma's ?
There is a VSC button on 2007-2008 trucks with the optional VSC/TRAC package. 2005-2006 do not have a button, but do have VSC/TRAC if equipped with the optional package. They simply cannot shut the system down (without mods). It's all on by default.

SORRY OP... You DON'T have an off button for mechanical limited slips (only in 2005-2008 Sport Tacos).
Correct.

Mind if I ask how you know the brakes are applied? Is there an audible beep in the cab when you break it loose? Do you feel the brakes pulse?

Could it be that that tires are just hopping a bit and causing the truck to shake? I know that in my old manual Ranger, it would shake the stick like crazy when I broke the tires loose.

I have found out that there isnt traction control in my truck. GP3, you are correct. When I was first trying to spin out it dash in a back alley with a bunch of potholes, which were causing the truck to shake. Yesterday I had no problems with traction control driving through a foot of mud. Looks like this thread was pointless! But thanks for all your help guys.

where specifically is the gray connector next to the battery? Will this keep the TRAC from coming back on when you hit 30mph?? Thank you

Just fyi... it is VSC that comes on at 30 mph if you are in AUTO LSD mode. Auto LSD is TRACtion control without engine regulation... and to add confusuion AUTO LSD is also called TRAC OFF MODE!

2WD TRAC (traction control with engine regulation)
2WD AUTO LSD/ TRAC OFF MODE (traction control without regulation)
VSC OFF MODE (no VSC and no traction control)

At least through 2011:
4WD-HI TRAC (traction control without regulation)
4WD-LO (no traction control, except on the Off Road TRD)
A-TRAC (Off Road TRD traction control in low range)
