I'm not sure I am following you. When the word "traction" is indicated in the tach, DTC is engaged. I know it sounds counter intuitive, but when DTC is engaged, part of DSC is off. This is the set up that allows for the most wheel spin.

Spinning your tires with x-drive is nearly impossible from what I understand. But I cannot speak from experience as I don't have it.

I've also learned recently that the 2013s with the Tu engine have a taller final drive. 2.81 versus 3.23:1. This, plus the added weight of the GC and x-drive makes it harder to spin - although this is not necessarily a bad thing.
