hey just a quick question. i know cars with traction assist dont have limited slip. i was just wondering if you knew why?J.Miller said:You can always wire a 24VDC normally open relay after the switch. A single position relay will typically have four connections. Two to power / ground the relay and two for the switch input and output. Make sure that the relay is rated for the proper amount of amps.
Use the power from the "Traction Assist" switch to energize the relay. Then run a fused wire from the battery to the NO switch position of the relay and to the traction control system.
As far as I know a Bird with traction control does not have a limited slip rear end (IE: It is a one legger) so it does not have that much traction to begin with. There is a limit on what it can do. In addition you can always turn off the Traction Control when you turn off the OD switch when you want to go faster.
If you insist, why not tie both the traction control and OD switch on a 2 pole relay connected to the button on the shifter?
I assume that you are talking about the MN-12 platform only?chrisnack said:...And yes J Miller, no car came stock with T/A and a trak-lok rear end. And T/A should be turned off if you have a trak-lok rear since you are working against it...

It spins like crazy in the snow, I've done small burnouts at the dragstrip, hard launches, anything you can think of... and it never did a thing. :2huh: I guess I'll be better off that way because I want to put a trak-lok rear in anyway... but weird stuff.
From what people tell me the 97 LSC Mark VIII comes with all speed traction control and a 3.27 open rear end. If you have a traction lock you have a special order.94 Daily Driven 4.6L said:

Because I know for a fact that my 97 Mark VIII LSC has both Traction Control and Traction Lock.
But I think it as a much more involved system than the Gen I Mark VIII's or the MN-12's.
My Mark has a "spinning wheel" emblem on the dash that lights up when the TC is operating. :leftright
Anyone know for a fact that the Gen II is different than the Gen I's? :2huh:
