ITT: Average drivers turning off stability control
Kids, keep the squiggly tire light off.
Oh, and IMO, just keep SC on until you can drive a car at the limit without engaging the system. For some cars with performance traction systems, like the Corvette, your're going to be going faster with it on than off regardless of skill level because the system actually helps create yaw.

First lesson learned in that video: DO NOT STAND OUTSIDE A CARS AND COFFEE!
That is mostly sudden on and off throttle applications applied to limited talent. Apply the throttle smoothly, not stomping, remove the same way.
Listen to the master about smoothness:
The only opportunity I've ever had to drive a C6, it happened to be February and snowing heavily.
The car was a Grand Sport with bald summer tires. Overall not bad (traction control on!).
I did have to salt the driveway very well and block the wheels so it wouldnt slide out of the driveway into the street when parked.

Agreed, the majority of these look like more power than ability.
