DTC allows the drive wheels to spin when needed to get the car moving and keep it moving.

DTC can also be activated by setting the driver mode to "sport+", which is basically 'sport' mode with DTC added/+.

If you want to use comfort or eco pro mode along with DTC, then simply set the driver mode to what you like, and then push the DTC/DSC button once and let go.
If you hold the DTC/DSC button for longer than 5 seconds, DTC and DSC will be deactivated.

In normal DSC mode, traction control is aggressive along with stability control.
DTC gives a more dynamic level of traction and more dynamic stability control.

Thank you so much for clarifying this with me... i will definitely try that next time.
