Question about Sport Mode on 2013-2016

So I havenít looked in the manual, and I havenít searched, but I wanted to get some info from the experts on here. I trust you guys more than other sources.
In pre facelift twins, what exactly are the different traction modes for? There is a VSC Sport button, and a Traction Off button (the one with the pic of the car with squiggly lines under the tires). When I press Sport button one time I get a Sport and VSC Off indicator on the dash. Iím assuming thatís just level 1? If I try to hold the Sport button down, nothing else happens.
If Iím in Sport mode and I hit the Trac Off button it removes the VSC Off indicator on the dash? I think??
Please explain what the button presses do. I only ever hit the Sport mode button, and I can tell it allows a little more slip and wonít cut the throttle as quickly.

These are indeed mysteries of Science , and these are the days of our lives.

Traction control I've found is nice/best in wet weather , less likely for the rear wheels to slip ... so I'm pretty sure it engages the LSD more so. However where I live most of the year I tend to want to take Traction control off , yet it never fails that after 1-3 minutes of driving ... some way, some how the traction control engages itself automatically!! How to stop this from happening ??

From what I understand VSC controls the car swerving from side to side. And Traction control just involves how much the rear tires spin. I think the safety systems kick back on if things get too wild, no matter what mode is selected. Because Toyotaís lawyers say so.

I would be interested to hear how the car reacts if you disable everything, but I wonít do it myself.

Oh and I wanted to edit my original post. When in Sport mode it indicates VSC Sport on the dash, not VSC Off.

are you just pressing the button? no press-hold?

No probs, but no, they're essentially saying you need to do the pedal dance to turn everything off until the 2017 model (manual only).
