Red face 545i DTC Clarification

Hello- I've read some threads on this topic and want to make sure I understand. I only have the DTC button in my 2005 545i 6 speed. When i hit the DTC button, the DTC lights come on in the display and iDrive window. Is the system now engaged or disengaged? The car has substantially more power, better throttle response and some wheel spin. It is a blast to drive when the DTC button is depressed after start-up. The biggest question I have - is the DSC still on and is there still some level of protection? I want to be safe yet have the most fun I can. New to BMW's, love the car and trying to figure it all out. Thanks!

If you push the DTC (DYNAMIC Traction Control)and the light is on that means it is enagaged. If you push and hold the DTC button for 5 seconds you will get another light on the dashboard ( i dont remember what it looks like, too lazy to go to my car now) This means that both DSC abd DTC are both disengaged or OFF. by default DSC is always ON!!
