Dunno, but if you have an owners manual it should say.

It is for starting off in second gear. If you require a greater amount of torque so your wheels do not spin.

It is for starting off in second gear. If you require a greater amount of torque so your wheels do not spin. I used it and it helped when my Prado got stuck in sand dunes. Normally, the car try to start in second gear, and if for example your car is stuck in Ice, first gear will cause the wheels to spin, so in this situation, second start will assist as it will transfer the power to the wheels very smoothly, thus preventing them from spinning. I hope you understand.

Starting in second gear provides less torque to the rear wheels, not more torque. This is why there is less wheel spin.

I should have said "provides less torque to the wheels". ie all the wheels not just the rear.
