Wow, there's really a lot of useful information in there! Including the answer to a long standing question I've had about whether or not the e-diff is turned off when the ESC is disabled. It's not, which I'm actually glad about. And while I knew there was an overboost feature, I didn't know there was an over-rev feature as well.

Excerpt from the manual about the e-diff:

ENHANCED TORQUE VECTORING CONTROL
Enhanced torque vectoring control (eTVC) is comprised of two elements:
• Torque vectoring control which applies brake torque on the inner
wheel in a curve for better traction and less understeer
• Cornering understeer control which controls the yaw response of the
vehicle under braking and acceleration on high and low friction
surfaces.
Unlike ESC, eTVC control does not slow the vehicle but does help
control excessive wheel slip and gives the vehicle cornering agility. The
system only increases performance. Because of this, eTVC is not disabled
when the AdvanceTrac system is off.

yeah, when I started saying "wow, there's some interesting info in here" I added the nerd piece.
