Disabling ESP just disables the stability control, but leaves the traction control on in full force. WTF is the point of that?!? How does MB expect me to slide without spinning the wheels? I have to pitch this stupid thing even harder around turns just to get it sideways, because all I see otherwise is a yellow triangle with a hyperactive disorder. Yeah, real safe feature there :wack:

Rant off... :dunno:

mb doesnt expect you to slide :wack:

if you really wanted to slide you wouldnt get an mb, if you did it would be an amg w/ a lsd

Exactly. You want to play stupid, then it is dyno mode only. The AMG esps are way different (in that I get to slide). It really doesn't over-ride until I do a full 180.

Oh yeah, you are also obviously trying to do a pussy slide, i.e. go slowly around the corner and then punch it in the turn. If you want to slide, go faster INTO the corner and it wil do a nice power slide out or push right into the tree ahead!!! Come to palomar for some lessons. I am having a harder time keeping my car inline now with the more balanced setup. MBs are designed to PUSH for safety.

Oh yeah I know, but I'm not trying to drift the car...I just love to powerslide. Drive in slowly, punch the gas, start smoking the tires and hang on.

Dyno mode is great, but I hate the fact that I have to pull over, turn off the car and go through all that crap if I didn't do it at startup. I wish it was just a button I could push :wack:

Like I said before. You two have no balls!! Go into the turn faster and you will slide out more.
It's also not going into the turn though.

Picture this...you're sitting at a red light about to make a left. Big wide empty road next to you, so you click off ESP, mash the gas and turn left. ESP decided to limit the fun and you just make a boring turn. You don't always get to jump into a turn at higher speeds around town.

The only cure for that is to get an AMG or to have your computers re-tuned (HUGE$$$).

Mine will definitely smoke the wheels and get sideways leaving a light.
