do they even have TCS?? those cars have the worse tration of all time.... BTW if you arewanting to spin your tires you will crack you daskboard up by the windsheild, all 3G Eclipses do that both of mine did and on top of that the motor mounts really suck and will wear out quickly

just replace the motor mounts with firm ones from deyeme and you will eliminate most of the wheel hop.

PS....STOP DROPPING THE CLUTCH AND YOU WON'T SPIN

motor mounts do work wonders with the 3Gs they suck for traction.

Actually I was just having some fun in our first snow strom here in Jersey . And yes the GTS model does have TC, but not a switch for it, at least not that I know of.

Ya I have honestly never seen one with TCS and I have been around 3Gs sincs 01... that doesnt mean anything though. and if you insist that you have it look in the owners manual at the fuse panel layout I know supra guys turn it off by pulling out its fuse.

But like I said I really dont think they had TCS do you have some sort of TCS light that comes on when spinning or on startup? again I have never once heard of it on any 3G
