    Even the to on my old W140 won't turn off completely. Me and a mate were trying some burn outs and a couple of donuts in his works car park after some beers. It's a bit frustrating to be honest.

    Is this all MBs?

    If I hit the button to disable it, I get the little orange warning triangle in the instrument cluster. I can then spin the back wheels and slip and slide all over the place. :dk:

    I cannot. If I turn just ESP off then it lets you get a touch more aggressive but as soon as the rubber slips it kicks back in.

    Turning the ESP off is not the same as "dyno mode" which WILL turn the ESP off.

    I can do the same as you so not all MBs.

    Not sure a W140 would have a dyno mode.

    In my case no forward motion and a great loss of burning rubber! :eek:

    I did 184 in my E63 against the two GT-R's at Woodbridge on that day and they aren't slow but clearly the weather was against us all as it was terrible! :bannana:
