Yea, I know. That's why I suggest you take a car control clinic. People should know how to really control a car, so that they don't exceed what the computer can compensate for. The car is relatively stable at its limit even with the stability control off, as long as you don't do something stupid.

I learned to drive before traction control existed, and I've spent my share of time with the traction control off in my E46:
