I'm sure another esp thread...

So I've been reading these different threads and I still cant figure out the right answer. Someone just give it to me straight and don't use the big words. If I want to do donuts in a parking lot. Do I turn the esp off? Partially or Fully or leave it on and hear that noise that sounds like something is breaking.

I don't believe 2005 WKs have the fully off function, but you definitely would not want any electronic interference if you're doing donuts. Jaashua, is this parking lot paved?

You all must be talking about a 2WD right? Because even with ESP off, the lockers still function on a 4WD
