    What exactly do they do, i usually just leave it on sport when driving around or racing and then turn it off when attempting to drift, what are the differences between "Driving Aid" "Hypersport" and "Sport".

    The Driving Aid is the same thing as Traction Control. "Off" is no traction control, "Hypersport" is the closest to off, "Sport is just for playing around, "Driving Aid" is minimal tire spin {full traction control}. I use "Driving Aid" for cruising, racing, etc...I use "Hypersport" while drifting in HCM. You can still get wheel spin while fully accelerating from a stop in "Driving Aid", what you do is slowly pull RT (controller)and that will cause no tire spin at all. Also, when you buy a car from a dealership (usually fast cars) you will still get wheel spin using "Driving Aid". You just have to break the car's engine in to make it stop, usually by putting some miles on it. Hope that all helped.

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, adn I know i write too much stuff in general too much at a time on these forums, but.. you mean something actually happens when a car gains miles; that there is a 'break-in' period? for real?
    :eek:mg:

    btw, to not be too O/T, I only use "off", and sometimes "hypersport" when i'm driving a very fast car (mod. enzo; koenigsegg, etc.) or I'm just lazily driving.

    Yeah it happens a lot to me, like when I buy a new Lamborghini (showroom). The wheels will still spin in "Driving Aid". You just have to drive the car a little bit to break it in.
