How about not shutting the DSC off. This never would have happened if your DSC was on...

For a more severe PIT maneuver (Fig. 12), even a skillful
driver cannot stabilize the vehicle with the help of ESC. Both
pursued vehicles develop substantial heading angles and
practically spin out (responses are shown in Fig. 13).


btw, if you want the force equations that essentially govern DSC, they're in that paper.

DSC won't apply throttle, only brakes . . so if you get throttle-lift-off-induced oversteer, there's not a heck of a lot that DSC can do to get weight back over the rear wheels. You're the one that has to give it some gas.

And speeding in the rain, on a downhill curve, is monumentally stupid.

Some of you guys need to take a basic performance driving class.

Thread Jack: I have an optioned out 2002 325i Non-Sport (Leather, power heated seats, rain sensing wipers, adjusting mirrors, steering wheel controls, folding rear seats, HK, etc.)

I'm confused as to why I have ASC and not DSC? Was it an option?

If so, the orginal owner must be nuts.. Pay for all those options and cheap out on DSC?

Then why are these guys quoting dates and sh!t, talking like ASC and DSC are different?

"I have a 2000 328CI with ASC. I can't remember the cut off date of the change though. I think the 2000's built in 1999 had ASC I believe. Mine was built in October 1999." - Some guy in the thread
"In 2000 some time it changed to DSC. I've seen a few select 2000 323i's with an ASC button." -another guy in the thread
