Quick Question?

How anyone ever had traction control OFF, started a burnout--power slide--drift or just plane having some fun on wet roads (or empty parking lot), then suddenly turn traction control ON or MDM while in the middle of you burnout?

Im curious to know if the car is able to recover and gain traction in the mist of all that?

I don't know if I would try that. Could lead to potential problems or damage to parts on the car. But if I had to guess I would probably say yes but it would be very rough

Good question. I have to believe it would cut throttle and apply brake real quick, depending on what you were doing.

BTW, I can powerslide in my car with DSC on, as long as I don't steer with the throttle.
