My advice is to never disable the VDC on the road.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote"> That makes sense for anyone not intending to drive their sport coupe or sedan in a spirited, sporty way I suppose. But most advanced driving schools advocate disabling VDC at some point in your driving skills learning curve. The idea of understanding exactly how your vehicle handles at it's limits in any variety of conditions - as well as what happens when you pass those limits - is critical to your understanding of exactly what it takes to either maintain or regain control and not make the situation worse. That makes perfect sense to me. Of course, experimenting with VDC off in an unsafe location or conditions certainly does not.
I don't know about anyone else, but I bump into VDC regularly. While undisputably a good thing, I think it is set to kick in too early. For example, if you just want to step the azz end out a bit for fun with throttle input, it reels you in so quickly as to make it nearly impossible. Booo....
