Thanks Kaiv!! Yeah, I think that was my second trip to Buttonwillow when you were instructing, and maybe only my 3rd track day ever. I learned quite a bit since then. As the year goes on, I'll be testing the waters more with DSC off. For now, I'm got some goals I want to reach with (Euro) MDM. Once I run the course of that, I'll back off and start working with DSC off more. Honestly, the laps I did with DSC-off last week went totally fine. (Euro MDM really is not much traction control to begin with.)
lulz, Gabriel, just bend over like an inmate and take it. I did. From April of '11 to April of '12, ran 30 track days in MDM mode. And, I heard it all. From all directions.
Then, in May of '12, went DSC off, and was frustrated for a while. Timing-wise, the coming summer heat only compounded things. If you decide to go DSC off, I'd suggest doing it when things are cooler and will remain cooler for a while. It'll be better for the ego, lulz. Anyhow, 8 months and 17 track days later, I know I'm happy.
With driver-mod, NT01 and the car setup pretty neutral, I'm having a blast besting my previous personal bests, but the track videos sure look boring now.
