If I enable traction control use pid and leave the values where they are what am I achieving?

First try changing the target slip until you find what works for you. Typical values are 2% - 6%.

If you're still getting a lot of slip in lower gears then next I would reduce the torque in 1st & 2nd gears.

Finally if everything is good then the PID can be altered to give a smoother retard. eg so it does not oscillate.
