When the systems switched off in the Porkers they are switched on again when touching the brakes for instance(just the way to adjust the car into a bend)
THAT SUCKS HEAVILY
keep in mind the porsches don't have a differential at all, they have a transaxle and they wouldn't be able to put all that power down without some limited slip device (probably just goes by a different name)
the porsche traction control does turn back on, IF you're way out of shape and on the brakes really if you're on the brakes hard while you're out of shape you're looking for help anyway
you'd need to also point out how the bmw traction control is much more active and noticable during agressive driving. The car slaps you on the wrist for aggressive driving. Porsche system is so good you almost don't have to turn it off
