Since I changet Toyo TS1s the VDc is far less intrusive than it was with the Pirellis.With the P7000's you could hammer into a corner and literally lean into the VDC,it would stop the tyres from breaking away.With the TS1s,the car will slide effortlessly on all 4 wheels and the fun factor is increased 10 fold,as are the lap times!! (thats with the ASR turned off).With the TSis you can have great fun on roundabouts,the Pirellis just gripped and snapped though.
moral of the story? dunno,haven't a clue,but I suspect the tyres are a big factor that many ignore at their peril.The VDc system is fine for stopping a spin and for leaning into a corner,but chuck it in to quick and you can't defy the laws of physics,the car will spin.Used properly the VDc makes for a very effective cornering tool.I just wonder if the guy in question wasn't seeing the light flash for ASR as it shares the same symbol,and the fronts just lost grip and spun.?
Only was to really explore is on a track and turn in quicker each time,I did and when it was gonna go their was no way the VDC would stop it,it was passed the point of the cars limit and driver ability was not in the equation it,just went.Smooth cornering the best way to use the VDc,in my humble experience.
Got first track day on Toyos soon so wil post another Porche chasing review! wink
