Your line of questioning tells me you should probably leave it ON.

I'm with JARblue

But until I get better acquainted with the car the VDC stays on. But it has nearly gotten me into trouble a few times but cutting throttle too much when I really freakin' needed it. But it has also saved me a few times like this weekend taking a curve the was atop a hill which descended at an interesting rate that caused my rear end to kick out a bit. If it weren't for VDC I would have been toast. So it is a gamble. But it is a sports car. Must respect it no matter what.

1. Seat belt on
2. Start car
3. Turn on WAZE app (only, in the morning) or WAZE app + Aux cable and start Pandora/Music (on my way home from work) - This also let's the car idle for a bit and the RPMs to drop.

When I'm pulling out onto the adjacent 60 mph road from my neighborhood street, the car cutting my throttle because I let the rear slip slightly can be a deadly situation. Based on the gap I'm trying to pull into, I know whether I'm going to be pushing the rear grip and how much; this allows me to properly control the car when I have full control of the throttle. If VDC is ON, my maneuver is sabotaged. I turn it on in the rain when I'm driving on the highway as a precaution.

The Z is currently getting a tune with the new EcuTek software, which I hope will give me further control over the traction control system. Even when VDC is off, the ABLS feature will still apply the brakes on a wheel that is spinning. I just want full control of my vehicle, and I don't think that's too much to ask.

I have enough driving experience that I feel completely comfortable with VDC OFF. If you don't have that level of comfort, my recommendation is you don't turn it off. But there's no need to keep badgering me about it... if you'd like to continue, I will gladly bash you for letting your child run stop signs and stop lights in the Z on public roads while learning how to drive

This.

Luckily it hasn't happened to me when pulling out into traffic, but being my first RWD car I tend to leave it on most of the time.

That and I drive like a pussy (your words ) so it doesn't often come on.

Though I have had it kick on upon exit of a corner and it wasn't very pleasant at all, and it probably made me look foolish to others around stopped at the light.

That would be true in equal circumstances, but us carbon based life forms have an advantage when driving - we have senses that see the road ahead, we know what we are going to do in the future.

Like all predictive systems, VDC would only work perfectly in hindsight (when it is too late!) at least until MB makes a car with GPS/laser/radar integration with more than just transmission or ABS.

I let the throttle off when I know theres no traffic or the person behind cant do anything tailgating like a creeper. Its almost like not restarting the car.
