Try leaving some rubber off the line or going “too fast” around a corner while on the throttle and then flooring it. At least with the Euro MDM on the E9xM3, those are easy ways to notice the Euro setting allows more wheel spin and slip before intervention. Any driver who likes to play around probably remembers how intrusive the stock setting is under those conditions.

I expect this mod to make zero difference in oversteer scenarios. This won’t magically turn the DSC module into an e90 module. What I do expect is less intervention on fast corners.

M track mode is also surprisingly allowing in those situations-- I'm surprised how sideways it'll let me get sometimes before stepping in.

My issue with M track is how suddenly it puts you back into line once it recognizes you passed the line too quickly. I wish it was more gentle so I could throttle the car out back into a straight line after slightly sideways and countersteered apex. lol

The MK20 is just ****ed. I think my DSC is left on for maybe 10% of the cars drive time. It feels broken when left on and moderately driving the car quickly.

Builldjournal has some MK20 software thats supposed to help. I'm planning on converting, soon, (Kaiv hurry up! ) but until then I just leave DSC off and shit my pants every time the ABS system is used (pretty much just tracking)


Just a factor to take into consideration, the brand/type of tire plays an important role in how intrusive the DSC can be when left on. With the Mk60 and a good set of PSS, I rarely felt it activate. Where as with the hankook v12's it seemed to come on every corner.

First time I REALLY exercised MTM I about shit my pants with how sideways it let me get. Didn't expect it at all. Thought for a moment I had the DSC completely off, but that wasn't the case. It's quite a lovely setting, especially with the dash light enabled like factory.

Wonder if the changes in this thread is something I should do to mine now.
