That in turn would increase the likelihood of momentary brake-caused locking if the VDC started to get interested in the proceedings. Which it might if it thinks the car is understeering and wants to help tighten your line.

I think I've felt a somewhat less intrusive form of that on both the WRX we have now and the 2010 LGT we had before it. Not all the way to locking, but there was a distinct feeling of the brakes on at least one corner of the car dragging. Fair amount of lat-g going on, and I was trying to squeeze into the throttle. Found a button that fixes that . . . for one key cycle anyway.
