I'm busting out the skies. One really good snowfall a year is good enough for me.

It's definitely more fun with DSC off.

go to an empty lot with a little snow still.. turn the wheel, turn off dsc, and give it some gas.... you'll see. haha

No I don't recommend it & do it at your own risk, I can control it a bit more and don't like dsc bogging me down but if there are a lot of cars around I turn it back on and back of the gas way way down...

Oh and highly recommend going to an empty parking lot and doing side ways...or in my case driving down the road in a side ways snow drift

DSC off is helpful in heavy snow. It keeps you from getting bogged down. At the same time, you need to be incredibly alert, as the back end will step out frequently, with even small bits of throttle input.
