eta: I'm off the opinion that while it would be more fun to have it all turned off I'm guessing it's not a huge deal for most. I'm just trying to understand the truth of the matter here as to what the differences are in the diff AWD systems and what everyone can and can't disable. I know they are mechanically different but I'm more referring to the "real world" differences in terms of user experience.
Well in the 5sp since the diff is mechanical rather than electrical (controlled) i don't see how vdc would do much other than through wheel braking or cutting engine power.

The few times i have tried to do donuts on gravel or whatever they are called in your post of the world, i have been able too. It is my understanding than vdc shouldn't allow this to happen.
