it is something I have NOT messed with, but if you put your foot on the brake (enough to activate B lights) and tap the t/c switch 2x it will allow your car to get somewhat sideways b4 reining it in. I think it is the ESC which is differant than TC which is just throttling back the engine to stop burnouts. The ESC will selectivley apply one (or more) wheel brakes to bring you back in line. On mine I have intended to kick out the back end but had the car apply the inside rear brake and instead of looking like I was a kid I just went "wow, that was interesting" as my car just got back in line.
Last winter I'd play around in the parking lot. Tract off id spin out pretty easily. Good for donuts. Sport mode I could do more controlled drifts. Traction all the way on. Pretty hard to do any fun stuff. This was in the snow.
