No, because ESP takes care of this problem,<br> ie. when one wheel breaks loose, esp will<br> apply brake to this wheel only, effectively<br> transferring power to the other side of<br> car, that's the way diff works.<br> But it's worth to mention that this has side<br> effects as well (ESP most probably will limit<br> engine torque at the same time) which basically<br> prevents *any* wheel burnout.<br> With ESP off (which does not exactly turns it<br> completely off) it is possible to do a two<br> wheel burnout, all you need is a good 'catch'<br> on even surface, plus keeping your steering<br> absolutely straight on startup.<br> no problem with that on my C320T.<br> <br> This ESP/Braking action setup is somewhat less<br> elegant than limited/locking differential and<br> of course not enough for race applications,<br> but it is more than fine for street drivin.<p>pschp-227.man.polbox.pl
