I'm struggling on where to begin with a response to such an inane comment, especially when considering the tone/language of your original request and comments.

I fear I will slide into a tirade of expletives if I don'tjust put the laptop down and make another mojito

And for that plank 'Twenny' who mentioned I shouldn't be mentioning it on a public forum...! You need to get out more mate!

Mojito? Does it have an umbrella in it?
My original post was simply requesting the understanding of how to turn off all traction assistance and my tone was very polite unlike some responses on here.

Your right though, grab another drink, kick your slippers off and enjoy another episode of strickly or the archers!

Clearly not a mojito drinker!

I should clarify on tone, i wasn't suggesting you weren't polite but the tone of your comments makes you come across as billy big bollocks which I'm sure others have thought hence so many of us being concerned you're going to drive round like a twunt.

But as I'm sure we all know, if the tone of comment/email/post can be taken in the wrong way then it will be, sods law. Perhaps it's that that's brought everyone to the same concern?

As an aside you seem to be suggesting I'm old and boring, far from it, I've never owned slippers and have never watched Strictly or listened to the Archers 0 out of 3.

Listened to the Archers once when I was poorly and have never felt well since. Anyway what the hell is strickly or strictly and what's the difference?

Trackdays or better yet, drift days.

Oulton park run a few from time to time. Its pretty cheap (usually £90) and the surface is concrete with a high glass content - meaning its super slippy and you can get sideways at low speeds and really learn your car.

Oh and you may find it tough to hold a nice slide with soft OEM suspension and open diff!

Oulton is a fantastic circuit. There are not many slow corners though (perhaps Fosters thru to Knickerbrook on the Clubman circuit) but there are also some seriously fast corners when taken at racing speed. I am not embarrassed to say that I drew the line at thinking about being sideways through Druids or Old Hall - happy to call it lack or talent/balls or probably both ☹️

The ECU recording data is BullSH*T, if you've ever watched police interceptor programs you always see after a major collision they try to piece together what's happened from them funny cameras, measuring skids marks, road surfaces how far the cars gone off course and where it's ended up from where it should have been but you never hear them say oh well take it back and see how fast it was going.

Sport+ will let you get the car out of shape, but it'll cut power before you're too sideways to recover. Sport mode I believe does nothing other than make the throttle a bit more responsive.

Wrong - yes they will data record using lasers and scanning technology to record the entire scene as it is at that final point.
However they will also interrogate the vehicles systems.
That is a fact - there are two locations here in Hampshire specifically for that purpose where the vehicles are taken for forensics investigations.

Hi Hammy, where in Hampshire? I hadn't considered that your name could be short for Hampshire! I live between Southampton & Portsmouth - you know, that part of the country that's so gridlocked at the times that I'm driving it's almost pointless having such a powerful car! Of course, Christmas and summer holidays liberates enough tarmac to make owning a fun car worthwhile ;)
