The problem with them, specifically in the Tundra, is they are overly intrusive. Sometimes you need to gun the throttle and get a surge of power to enter a traffic stream, merge etc. If the electronics detects even a tiny drizzle of wheelspin it will completely shut off power and leave you dead in the water with your vehicle stuck half way into the street. Annoying at best, dangerous at worst. Don't get me wrong.....properly tuned and set up, this technology can be beneficial. My Duramax, despite being a piece of garbage for other reasons, has a better traction control arrangement than the Tundra because it allows a bit of wheelspin before it cuts power. When it does cut power, it is done gradually and predictably, unlike the sudden and complete pulling of the plug with the Tundra.
I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.
