Me too. I hate sitting at a corner getting ready to turn into traffic and then rev up a little and let go of the clutch and a tiny chirp then my car just stops, wow, I have almost gotten smashed up b/c of the VDC. I will admit, I totally need it in the rain, sometimes my rear will start coming around on a sharp turn and then there is the VDC saving my rear from an almost certain 180.

^^^Sounds like you need some new tires if you are breaking the rear tires loose like that. I think in general VDC is a great boon to the drivers, but agree that sometimes you just have to be able to turn it 100% off.

I always keep the VDC on unless I intentionally want to bark the tires. The VDC is smarter than I am when trying to prevent me from going off the road.

You guys need the VDC off module from KP Technologies. It keeps the VDC is the last state in which you had it. So you can keep it off all the time until you want to turn it back on.

From what I understand, you have to pull the brake fuse to turn VDC completely off. The VDC button disables most of the system but not everything.
