SOP for pushing closer to the limits, esp. on a track.

I'm afraid that Millenials LITERALLY make me nauseous. That and why exactly did he turn off the stability control?
People turn off traction control for similar reasons, when doing a fast launch or to allow you to control under/oversteer on corners, i.e.get the tail out: https://flowracers.com/blog/turn-off-tr ... the%20car.
When testing performance cars, auto enthusiast magazines routinely turn off one or both to allow them to enjoy full control and push the car closer to its limits. The average driver, for whom terms like "trailing throttle oversteer" might as well be Greek, and who never pushes a car near its limits, will have no need to turn either off, bar a few situations in snow, sand or mud.
