Default Dumb question here....please advise...

What are the pros and cons of the "OD (overdrive)" button and the "TCS" button? Thanks for your time fellow enthusiasts...lol

Oh...and what do I turn on or off to make the car a tad faster? THANKS!

OD - better mileage at higher speeds = less power until you shift down. TCS "off" = no traction control. Better able to burn out. Neither one "ADDS Power".

The OD button is only for automatics.

If OD is turned on, then it allows the trans to shift into 5th. If OD is off, then the transmission won't shift into 5th. That's all there is to it.
