Understand The Electronic Stability Control
You are looking for just the right type and kind of parts and accessories that you would like to add to your vehicle. You simply cannot afford to purchase a new vehicle that is why you have decided to rather replace worn out parts and add some new accessories. You have been scouring the market and you have trimmed down your list to a couple of Accel wires, a Catco converter, and a Gibson Exhaust. But did you ever consider adding a feature like the Electronic Stability Control, or the ESC?
Continental Teves has got an ESC that they are currently offering the market. Their Electronic Stability Control is what they define as “a stability enhancement system designed to electronically detect and assist drivers in critical driving situations and under adverse conditions.” What the Continental Teves ESC also boasts is that it actually does this automatically. So that means that the driver of the vehicle equipped with the ESC would be assisted by the ESC even without sending out commands to the vehicle.
So you may now ask, what exactly are the advantages that you get if you have the ESC installed in your vehicle? Well, you can actually say that this really good feature continuously compares the intended course of the driver with the actual course and direction that the vehicle is taking. And if there are disparities or differences between the two, the ESC is the one who is responsible for compensating and making up for the difference. Along with that, the ESC is the one very much responsible for keeping your vehicle on the road and on the side of safety during situations where the vehicle may actually be veering out of control. The ESC senses situations like wheel lock ups and spins as well as total loss of control of the vehicle. And when it does, the feature would make sure that the vehicle would still be on the safe side and not headed into danger.
