: The ASC light only flashes when engine management is being used (i.e. fuel reduction) but when only the brakes are being used the light doesn't flash. The brakes are pretty easy to activate and control oversteer pretty seamlessly.

: Main danger of the ASC is a sudden powerloss mid corner will be very exciting at high speeds, more so than a little bit of wheelspin.

Yep that's were I'd put my money on, that last sentence from Preston.

I'm sure they told you at that high performance school not to lift when the car is oversteering at high speeds or else you'll spin.
That's exactly what the ASC+T will do for you is lift the throttle (not good), it also has the ability to brake only one wheel (very cool).
