172s after around Aug 2002 are fitted standard with Traction Control (ASR) and ESP (previous supply was a £750 option for ESP). As mikeherts posted there is an ESP button on the dash that can disable/enable the TC and ESP (normally enabled on start-up). When disabled the "skidding car" lamp on the instrument cluster is illuminated.
problem with the 172 traction control............its w**k! for setting off anyway, its not a launch control, it just bogs you down at the slightest hint of a fast set off, its best turned off for a quick start and rely on good old driver ability.
