    Turning off PSM?

    Hi all, I am going to a skid pan in the morning. How do I keep the PSM off? Is it true that the moment I touched the brakes the PSM comes back on? Thanks.

    Re: Turning off PSM?

    Somewhat true.

    If you are in trouble and the ABS kicks in the PSM will automatically come back on but only as long as the bad situation lasts. IOW, it will stay off if switched off when ABS is not needed.

    Cool! Thanks!

    No prob. Good luck at the track.

    Check manual to make sure I'm not forgetting something.


    Re: Turning off PSM?

    my suggestion is to keep PASM in normal mode. it will make inducing a drift much easier.

    I thought this to be the case. But it is not.

    I was at a skid training session with Porsche last week. And asked this question. They told me that PSM won't turn itself back on as a result of the ABS and proceeded to demonstrate.

    On that day, I had the ABS going constantly, and the car spun and did a variety of acrobatics. But the only time the PSM turned itself off, was when I turned the car off! (or rather, when I stalled it!!)

    I had a lot of fun today. Thanks all who responded. Here is a photo my friend took.

    I guess I know what a skid pan is now
    Is that Aussie slang for track, sorry Cali girl here ;-)
    Wow, that looks soooooooooooooo fun in the water!!

    Re: Turning off PSM?

    skid pan's not an aussie slang for track.
    it's an english noun for a super slippery course (usually a small figure 8 with water & diesel on surface) used to familiarize a driver with a vehicle's understeer/oversteer characteristics (as well as how one should go abt resolving the skids). it's a lot of fun!!

    Re: Turning off PSM?

    it's usually called a skid pad in the US..usually just a big praking lot or in an airfield

    wet and fun!

    AS it's time to go to a track now!
