Can you imagine doing this in an original C6 Z06 before they revised the dampening? holy cow.

Anyways, awesome experience and video. Can you run the full oval on wot and without lifting? R&T did a shootout with various cars 3 years ago and the E92 M3 was used. It achieved some decent top speed and times, but was limited to 155, and I think they achieved 145ish (GPS measured) at top speed. It's competition were mostly cars with 200mph speedos however.
That skipping around is probably the DSC. Even in MDM, it still skips around a little.

I did not experience any DSC skipping in except a couple times when getting on throttle early in the turns in the infield section. I try real hard to drive in a way that it does NOT interfere.

The video is a little jumpy because the headrest mount is a piece of PVC piping. LOL.

I'm surprised you didn't get any rear end wiggle on the NASCAR banked turns. It happens in pretty much any car with DSC/MDM on.

Some guys were indeed experiencing it on the bank and were expressing it in class. I have no idea. It might be speed or throttle position - but I was going through that faster than the guys that mentioned it. Maybe they were running stickier tires that may cause the dsc to go off? Maybe the ZCP actually does something that causes it not to?

I have no clue - next time I'll try something different each and see what the outcomes are.
