When I try to accelerate fast from a standing position, with the DSC on, my car does not accelerate smoothly through first gear, but jerks very wildly. The DSC light does not come on. With the DSC off it doesn't seem to do this as much. Sometiomes when I go over a bump, sometimes even when I just accelerate hard, my DSC light comes on. Is this normal, or is my Dinan Stage 3 suspension causing this problem, or is my DSC messed up? Only like 2500 miles on the car. Anybody else experience this?

i think the jerking might be your traction control. TC will be activated with out informing you. going over big bumps or holes will set of the little light you have in your car which is normal.
