The problem with the current MDM setup is that it really cuts the power. I don't know if it completely stops torque delivery or not, but the intervention is severe. Moreover, it lasts a good half second or so, and you kind of get "stuck" in that state coming out of a corner, which actually somewhat unsettles the car if you had it in a controlled slide. I am sure the magnitude and the duration of the intervention can be tweaked though.
