It will be for mainly track use but I find with my 140 the dsc kills power to wheels too much no matter what mode I'm in like yesterday I took it out did my launch control and instead of it just shooting off there was a lag of power a second after launch even know dsc was off I was wondering if anyone has had it coded so when you press the button it actually turns off

Sport+ should make it easier to launch even in the wet, but only if you have PS4 or GY asym tyres, not on the MPSS.

Or if you hold the DTC button for a few seconds it turns it off.

Unless you have a welded or a strong locking diff you will probably make the car much worse without any electronic assistance

when you say 'off' are you referring to just one press of the button (traction mode) or press and hold like onetwenty mentioned?

You say its off off but tske your fuse out of the dsc and you'll see a big difference and I remember reading it somewhere I thought off is of until I removed dsc

Interesting. Perhaps it's different in the M2 as the other cars may rely on the e diff thing even when off.

I think that’s where this 10% activity could be, the e-diff. With DSC ‘off’ you still have ABS, I wonder if the e-diff falls into the ABS aspect as opposed to DSC.

If I remember rightly its the abs which causes such a high %so disabling dsc will disable abs meaning lights which no one likes haha
