HI EVERYBODY,
finally the Veloster Turbo has arrived and i am seriously thinking about getting one, BUT i am a true Sport Car Purist and to me the Stability Control is a Blasfemy... i can pass a Traction Control if i Can disable it at will, BUT a Stability Control of any kind is Totally Unacceptable!

Is there a way to Disable the Stability Control on the Veloster?

And i mean... DISABLE DISABLE!

Not like some Toyotas that you can disable it and once you reach 30mph it re-engages it even if you don't want it, or like the BMW that if you disable it do not allow you do use Cruise Control...

I DON'T WANT A STABILITY CONTROL

So either there must be a button to turn it off, or someone has to clearly say if by cutting wires, the car will not allow me to drive it the way i want to (if you unplug the Bosch ESP Box from a BMW, you can only drive normally and not with Cruise Control.. ABSURD!)


SO... IF SOMEONE HAD THE LUCK TO TEST THIS CAR, I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW THE ANSWER

From this i will decide weather i will want the Veloster or not

It may take a while to get an answer to this as we really don't have the cars yet
Believe me, having spent 2-decades on the racetrack, and more than half of them as an instructor, I too am not thrilled with a SC
However, I suspect we will have a way, or will find a way to over-ride most of it, or be able to disable it
I remain optimistic :)

im pretty sure they will have an option to turn it off all those track vids on youtube with the vt drifting i doubt they will make it so you cant disable it if you wish

There is a button in the N/A V on the right side of the center console that allows you to turn of the ESC. You can engage cruise with it off, light the fronts if ya want to, get it a lil loose and slide, and it will not self re-engage.. I would assume they put the sane button inside the VT.

I can see TCS as being able to be turned off, I'm not so sure ESC or VSM will be able to be turned off

Traction Control System (TCS)
Working in tandem with ESC, TCS limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels to reduce the occurrence of wheelspin, and routes power to the wheel with the most traction.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
One of three elements in Veloster's Vehicle Stability Management system, Electronic Stability Control uses sensors in the steering system and at each wheel to compare where you want to go with where the car is heading. If a difference between the two is detected, Electronic Stability Control slows the appropriate wheel to redirect the car and help keep you on course.

Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
Veloster's Vehicle Stability Management system coordinates Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), plus the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) with Brake Assist to create an integrated active safety system to help you avoid accidents.


Unless, once TSC is turned off, both other systems are disengaged because the TSC which is a part of them is not active
