    You're free to do what you wish. I just have to concur that I think everyone believes they are better drivers than they actually are, myself included. Who hasn't made their blood flow by taking a turn faster than they should have? At least once....anyone?

    That's why insurance is what it is on WRX/STI/Evo...people crash them more often than other cars. So I completely agree on the internet-driving expertise front, but I did not see it as an attack (but understand it being taken that way). Healthy discussions are a good thing though.

    Exactly. Why turn off a system that could be beneficial to a safe trip home? especially if the conditions are sketchy to begin with. Regardless of whether a driver needs it or not its there to be used in case its needed. The more sensitive a system like this is the better it works. Only reason I would think that it comes on more with snows vs standard tires is that snows have deeper tread and they squirm quite a bit more.. could possibly be tricking the system into thinking its breaking traction when it may not be.

    All its going to do is trim the throttle a lil bit and work the brakes to balance wheel torque.. not much different than traction braking a 4x4 off road. To be honest I would think it would help a stuck vehicle try to get loose vs hurting its abilities.
