    I watched a friend lose control on his 2013 ZX14 with TC after hitting some wet spots while he was accelerating. Big wag of the tail and down he went. I don't think TC can save you from all situations.

    I checked this on my bike today. In Rally mode, if you disable MTC completely and ABS, turning the bike off and on again enables both.

    It's due to regulation. At least with abs. leave that on off-road which makes more sense anyway unless you ride on sand or other extremely loose stuff and it won't reset.

    And with the tc I can powerslide on 8. And always remember that speed plays a big role for the tc. at (near) Stand still you can let the tyre spin all day with tc 9. So I didn't find a reason to go below 4 yet. (we don't have sand here)

    Tc will fail if you spin it standing. At least I have got it fail almost everyride doing spinning u-turn from stand still..

    Yes, it's only the offroad mode that is stored.
