No they are not the same.DSC = Dynamic Stability Control....or traction control
Ahhh.....thanks! This was the exact piece of info I neededbluong1 said:No they are not the same.DSC = Dynamic Stability Control....or traction control
- TSC ensures a proper longitudinal friction (front to back) of the tires during acceleration. It's use the same wheel sensors as with ABS and controls the engine output (and eventually brake force)
- DSC ensure a proper lateral friction (side skidding) of the tires during cornering. Beside the wheel sensors, it needs a yaw sensor/lateral accelerometer which are not required by the TSC. It controls mostly the brake force.
N/A do not get both features.
I know.....but a man can wish, can't he?dinu01 said:B/c small cars are thought of to be econoboxes not proper cars, unlike in Europe where the C-segment is THE #1 segment.
It's the bigger is better mentality that, when it comes to cars, is wrong! Now for other things...
