DCT Button on automatic 2007 335I

So Question on my 2007 335I with 6 speed auto

The DTC which I assume means Disable Traction Control

when I hit the button, and turn it off, I thought it would turn off the Traction Control
but if I stomp on the gas the rear wheels will break loose( which is what I want) but the ABS system starts kicking in and applies the breaks

is this correct

and if so, how do I turn it off If I want to do some wheel spinning???

Actually it's dynamic traction control.

You need to disable the DSC and then you will get all the wheel spin you need.

Disabled these on the wet skid pan at the PDC in Greer.

Amazing how fast the 335i was able to spin into the grassy infield!

No. It applies the brakes.

For more info, read this post and your owner's manual. It's explained in there, too.

I saw two 335i's planted onto the grass in the wet/dry autocross course at the PDC during the last Z Homecoming. Really got pretty slick in the wet honed areas. Despite this, I was 2nd out of 200+ drivers on the day.

Cool. Well holding the button in for 5 sec works. Just have not done any tire spins yet. Afraid i will break something
Like the differential. Every thing else appears to break on these cars

hold the botton down until a tringle appears on the dash...usually about 5-10seconds and that fully disables the traction control
