I found an M4 was almost undrivable on a tight wet motorkhana course with DSC/DTC off (the high torque hit at relatively low revs makes throttle modulation really tricky)
I can imagine in the wet they are of great value and i would probably drive faster with them on compared to dsc fully off. But I still rather like to be in full control and drive a bit slower. I feel it's the only way to learn and see how the car responds.
