Just imagine the liability issues....

While switching off DSC/DTC for serious performance driving is fine, on a non-dedicated track car for daily use, I would allways want a fully operational (switchable for moments of fun) DSC. You cannot allways foresee whatīs coming up and in certain situations DSC really can be a life saver.

So I guess i really need an M3
an LSD doesn't affect DTC or DSC... the parts are internal that lock up when needed... the Traction Control features are an electronic command to put power to whatever wheel it needs.

On the other hand, putting a NO SLIP differential WILL affect traction control... the computer can't tell a wheel to move independently...

info courtesy of TurnerMotorSports when i asked them about the OS Giken 3.64:1 LSRD (the one they sell is for M3, but they can special order one for other models)
