Sounds like competitive mode will allow useful wheel spin while a relaxed stability control can still help a driver recover if he gets to far sideways for the speed... a good compromise for fun with a decent safety net. I like it. Competitive mode for the win.

Thanks for the input.

Normal & Comp mode is "probably" your best bet. Nannys all off can lead to bad things........ Ask me how I know.

Are we really having a discussion where people advise that "nannys" off can lead to an accident?

Somebody always manages to trot that argument out, without making even the least attempt to distinguish between "additional risk" and "guaranteed outcome".

As far as specifically TC is concerned, if you really need that turned on for dry weather driving, you've purchased more performance than your level of driving talent and ability to step back from the red mist can support.

Even in normal mode it's very easy to get the back end to step out.

Instead of thinking in terms of "how easy it is to make the back end step out", how would you answer the question "How hard is it for me to keep the back end from stepping out?".

An appropriate level of throttle control (and self-discipline) should cover you for most driving conditions. For a few situations - mostly out near the car's grip limits - the drive-by-wire throttle tip-in response may well be too aggressive at small initial throttle positions. What's good for the dragstrip and impromptu straight line episodes really can be too much for other driving once you're working with 6+ liters worth of low end torque.
