Brake safty?
Iam not entirely sure were to post this. But I hope here is good. So earlier tonight I took a turn fast to make a green-ish light and there and trolley track in the ground. In the middle of the turn, which was a fast turn, the back tires rode on the metal and it started to slide so to straighten out I started to hit the gas (its manual so i was in 2nd) and it felt like power was being cut and the ABS (or so i think) came on and did something that made a noise like the brakes were being hit/pumped. I could feel it in the wheel as well. The car stopped slide almost instantly and power came back on kinda of slow. Does anyone know what this system is called?

Stability control. Sounds like its working as designed.

X2, the car was trying to make up for somebody trying to gas up at the wrong time. Hitting the gas is absolutely the wrong thing to do with a loss of traction.

In a rwd sure but not fwd nope and like I said the back was sliding not the front. The front was planted like a sequoia.

The software physics know that if one end is sliding the other is likely close to it. Already detected rear slipping (yaw and possible tire rpm change) then you power on (rpm increase) to simulate front beginning to slip, of course it came on. Your ECM is watching all of that.

I guess what gets me is I didnt see any wires or sensors to the back wheels but yeah the ECU is an all seeing eye.
