MB is not making the knowledge of their cars easily available to the owners.
To my knowledge turning ESP off disable TC to some degree. Meaning you never totally have it off. Would be nice to find info what exactly happens on our cars, but most owners don't even know they have speed governors installed, so evidently not too many push their cars to the limits.
Anyway, turning the switch off makes big difference on my 2WD sedan. I also prefer to control the spinning with my foot, than switch the transmission to W mode.
Than my diesel gas pedal doesn't jerk the engine on start like gassers do.
