What was the old Nintendo code? Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A, select, start? Right?
The Lexus IS evidently has its own cheat code to turn off the traction control. While I think that vehicles like the Corvette should be equipped with four levels of user-determined traction control, I did get a big kick out of this as a member of the Nintendo generation.

Posted on VWVortex Forums, here's the cheat code:

"start the car with the parking brake on ….then foot brake twice….(keep the foot brake down)….then parking brake twice (keep it down )and repeat till skid light is on the dash…..it will reset when you restart the car"
