In the sand
Looking to go to the dunes (just want to try it once) and have some fun sliding around in my LX... problem is when it snows and I press VSC off, my 2010 LX570 automatically re-engages it once I lose grip.

It makes no sense. Is there a procedure to turn it off completely and allow me to slide around for a good 5 minute session?

Thanks in advance mudders!

Are you engaging your center diff lock?
 
No, I haven’t tried that. Mine randomly flashes from time to time on my dash even when I don’t push it. Not sure if that makes a difference but thought I’d mention it
 
I am not sure of this but I believe all of that VSC stuff turns off when you switch to 4Lo. At least that is what I did when stuck in the sand on the Oregon coast. I found it much easier to drive around in 4Lo with the multi-terrain mode turned to Sand. Although of course I did not set the transmission to S1 or S2. I think I left it at S6 on my 2018 which would be like S4 on your 6-speed. But, again, I'm not the expert.
 
You have to be at a complete stop and just press and hold the button until trac off appears. I turn it off almost every time I drive.
 
Try 4Hi, center diff locked. VSC should go off automatically. Airing down helps, should be interesting w/ your tires! Have fun!

I have a set of KO2s mounted on methods too, but I think the stockers will be fine on sand!

On sand, I air down to 15-20 psi and lock the center diff. Regular all season tires do just fine on sand.
