To much power to rear wheels

On lm60 winter tires
Doing a ninty degree turn to the right
I give the throttle about 75% gas while turning the traction control light flashes

Does that mean to much power going to rear wheels so the system is cutting power to one of the wheels to prevent slipage?

Rwd btw

Uh, yea. Traction control in these things is brutal that way. Many near misses as it kicks in. Will be worse on LM60-great tires though.

winter tires do not have the best grip even on dry road, unlike summer slicks.

Ease off the throttle :-) 75%! Spent 4 years on LMs with my 335 RWD E90, in Ottawa winters - they were fine except on wet ice.
