I've a 97 C2 with TC and LSD.

The TC is very agricultural and when it does kick in it's very abrupt. That said, I rarely get the light flashing on and the car gets an absolute beasting every time I drive it. I leave it switched on as a safety net but haven't needed it in 2 years.

I've had it on track in the wet and it was supreme, so much traction I was overtaking M3s because they couldn't get the power down while the traction control didn't even come on in my C2 and I drove straight past.

The only time I've had any issue has been with really aggressive weight transfer. I'd say get the C2 whether it has TC or not, you need to be driving like a tool to un-stick it.

This video was posted by someone else on here, although I can't remember who unfortunately. So credit to the original poster.


Fast forward to around 6 minutes to see PSM in action.

I'm looking for a 996 at the moment as well. And apart from a manual gearbox, hard or targa top, PSM is the only other 'must have' for me.

I had a bit of a similar 'moment' to the guy in the video and was grateful for the safety net the system provides.

Although if you find a non-PSM car, I do remember reading about an aftermarket racelogic traction control system you can fit. They stopped making them in around 2015, but they may still exist on ebay.

It's cruder than PSM in that it doesn't brake individual wheels, etc. But I read good things about it.

Race logic did have a tc system which cut the engine, which sounds similar to the tc on the early 996.1 cars. I considered this many years ago to fit to a lotus.
