I tried turning off the DSC a couple times at higher speeds. It does make a difference. It did not elimanate it, but it did give a more positive feel of the road. While I experienced crosswinds it recoverd faster with it off. With the DSC on it felt more floaty and less conected with the road. I am thinking that the system is trying to recover the vehicle when a crosswind or draft is occuring making it feel worse than what it is. As of recent if the roads aren't wet, I turn it off. Even at lower speeds through twisties I feel handling is improved.
