My opinion is that the EVO DTC/DWC is a very nice add on if you are racing. Other wise. I don't see much befit on the street. For $560 bucks you need to decide if your talents are going to be better suited using that money for track time or performance gain on the bike. Hope this helps.

Only done a couple of track days, what Ive found is that at my level I am nearly as fast in wet mode on a short track but best settings for fun is race mode, dtc and dwc 2 or 3. Been really aggressive on exit and never felt out of control, I think that its a mistake to rely on DTC to act as a corner babysitter, more relevant is throttle control and tire pressures, selection and wear, plus reading track conditions and developing feel. If you crack the throttle at max lean expecting dtc to sort it, reality will bite
Thanks! I will take your advice!

I have done 2 trackways on my 1299 s. I've been running for several years, but never used traction control before. Had one high side with my former R1... I do not have the skills to drift out off corners. Will the DTC be able to controle the skid if I give full throttle after apex in the levels 1 / 2 / 3? In level 8 there was no problem, but I do feel I loose a lot of performance at the higher levels on DTC.

Which DTC level(s) is the best regards safety and performance? I run Supercorsa SP tires.

Thanks :-)
Supercorsa SP on the track = Level 2
