Default Does turning off DTC

help improve around town handling? or is it a safety hazard? talked to someone at the volvo meet with an s60 (r???) who said they keep theirs off. the only flaw with this is that my car isn't an s60r. it's the anti-turning radius beast.

I don't see how it would be a safety hazard unless you're driving like a mad man :P

if you can drive and want to have a little extra fun, drive with it off, but the moment it gets wet, i put it back on... dont like understeering in the rain...

No doubt there is a difference under hard acceleration in a corner, but for the safety aspect, I keep it on still.
