Yeah. They do. Some people think I'm nuts for turning if off. Rainman was even heard mumbling about it at one point after my PS2's spit me off the track in T16/17 at Chuckycheesewallawalla. I guess it's a safety net thing, but frankly it is too invasive for my taste. It's always dabbing the brakes at Cal Speedway on the banking or at Turn 11 at Chuckwalla. I wouldn't have gone spun in 16/17 if it was on, b/c I wouldn't have been going fast enough.

DSC and I aren't friends. I normally only run it on instructor orientation laps or when I'm running in the D or C groups. Great to show students how smooth you can be even at speed. Stock DSC is too intrusive for a fast lap though, imho.

The Euro MDM didn't seem that intrusive at all in the first video. Looked like you were getting some pretty good yaw angles at times and it didn't come on. It didn't seem to react to the curb assaults either.

Now, if we could get 2000's era F1 TC on the car, we'd have a different conversation.
