Hib Halverson reviews the C5 Corvette’s Active Handling system.
"When ordered on a C5, Active Handling combines with the car’s traction control system (TCS) to enhance control in maneuvers having high yaw rates. TCS (or "ASR,"; as it was once known) has been standard equipment since 1992 and can apply the rear brakes to control wheel spin during acceleration. Active Handling takes that brake intervention a step farther by using single-caliper, brake applications to control gross oversteer or understeer situations in which the driver may have trouble maintaining control using steering, throttle or brake pedal inputs alone."
