Always best to have a plan B while you wait for plan A to complete.

Would be neat if the VSC (vehicle stability control) was working too, not that I expect Hoopie to drive like a lunatic in that incredible truck.

Mine engaged once when I sharply swerved to avoid a crate in the middle of my lane on the highway, and then yanked the wheel back to avoid hitting the concrete barrier that keeps cars from going off the bridge. I would have been able to recover the fishtail, but VSC quickly stamped it out with just 2 small steering inputs.
