How to disable traction control permanently?

Anyone know how? I've turned it off on the wheel, and entered "Competitive Driving Mode" but when the ass kicks out around a turn, the TC still comes on... what am I missing?

Hold the button down continously for around 5 seconds, then everything is off. When you start the car again later, it will be on again. (You have to turn it off everytime).

But I believe that it also uses a different stability control mode, in that you have a wider window to F* around in, right? Otherwise, push the button once and TC is off, push twice for competitive mode and TC goes off as well as stability control gets "lazy" for lack of a better term (or that's how it feels, at least).

You bring up a good point there. I forgot about the one button tap!!!
BUT for real fun hold it down for the 8 second... I try to drive that way everywhere if it is not raining. Thought I may destroy those Michelin PS2's quickly it is fun and I am looking forward to trying the Toyo R1 tire.
