О системе курсовой устойчивости (TCL)
In 1990, Mitsubishi released the Diamante (Sigma) in Japan. Featured among the innovations geared for active safety was the new, world first, Traction ControL (TCL) system
. TCL was developed to help the driver maintain the intended line through a corner. An onboard computer monitors several vehicle operating parameters through various sensors. When too much throttle has been used when taking a curve, engine output is automatically reduced to prevent the vehicle from overshooting. TCL also includes a standard wheel slip control function for better traction on slippery surfaces or during cornering. In addition to the TCL system's individual effect, it also works together with electronic controlled suspension and four-wheel steering to improve total handling and performance.
