Yesterday, I was making my merry way home from school and made a routine turn onto a street. Immediately confronted by a red light, I make the best of the time given to me and look for ricers to harass. I look to my left (i'm in the right lane) and a kid I know from school is in his Scion - giving me "let's go" hand motions. I'm always up for a good-natured race between friends, and this kid is pretty cool. I casually shift the autobox's selector into sport, then manual-shift mode. I look for the light, and the instant it goes green the accelerator meets the floorboard very quickly. I see the orange DSC light flicking on and off on the instrument panel - my way of determining how good my launch was, and the Sumitomos squeal a bit before I leap off. I got the jump off the line, letting the engine run to the redline before shifting up. I recall seeing my speedometer at 90 as I crested the hill when he flashed his lights, his signal for conceding defeat. I hit the brakes and tucked in behind him to cut through the traffic. The day then continued as planned.
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.

I believe its called dynamic Stability control, on some of the newer models there are 2 levels of it that you can turn off, i'm not sure what they are. Basically it compensates like envy said. But it will also try to anticipate what your going to do and react so the car stays in control, it will try to keep the car on line and prevent overstear and all sorts of stuff like that.
