Who know what difference between DSC and ASC ?

ASC is just traction control - if you give it too much gas and it starts spinning a tire or two, it will reduce engine power and maybe apply the brake(s) to that/those wheel(s).<p>DSC is a stability control system that monitors your steering inputs and uses an accelerometers and yaw sensors. Basically, it determines what <i>you want the car to be doing</i> and compares it to what the car is <i>actually doing</i> and adjusts for any discrpancy between these two parameters.<p><i>: Who know what difference between DSC and ASC ?<p></i>

<br>ASC does essentially three things:<p>First, it uses the brakes to control tire spin independantly for the rear.<p>Second, if the braking doesn't work sufficiently it will reduce fuel flow to the engine.<p>Third, if it senses oversteer (as in when you are going around a corner on a slippery day and let off the gas), it will automatically try and compensate by INCREASING the power going to the rear wheels.

I thought the third point (that the car will actually accelerate in a given situation) was just a rumor. Where did you see this documented? Something about a car accelerating by itself seems unsettling....<p><br><i>: <br>: ASC does essentially three things:<p>: First, it uses the brakes to control tire spin independantly for the rear.<p>: Second, if the braking doesn't work sufficiently it will reduce fuel flow to the engine.<p>: Third, if it senses oversteer (as in when you are going around a corner on a slippery day and let off the gas), it will automatically try and compensate by INCREASING the power going to the rear wheels.<p></i>

<br>is not just a basic throttle control traction system.

<br>a conversation with Jim Conforti about how and when the ASC operates and its usefulness (or lack there of) in high speed situations.
