I disagree. The sooner you get off the DSC crutch, the better. I don't know how any intermediate or advanced can even drive it in MDM. It interferes to much on exit, does not allow you to maintain any slip angle. It will let you slip the rears for a short bit but kicks in at the worst time. It has actually put me into a hairy situation twice, almost dropped 2 wheels off leading to something worse.

DSC will start kick in on exit right when the car starts to slip (maximum traction). I'm using the slip to rotate the car from apex to exit so I can be on full throttle. DSC kills that slip angle in the tires and will point me right off track so it becomes a wrestling match...me vs DSC.
