Default Traction Control vs Electronic Stability

What is the difference between Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control?

What does each do respectivly?

Which one does my R/T have?

When I cut turns fast I feel the car adjust for under/over stearing... what is the car doing?

When I spin the wheels I see the skid light on the dash come one... I don't feel anything happening. what is the car doing?

The traction control limits wheel spin and the ESP or stability programming will keep the rear of the car behind you in a slid or aggressive manuver.

Thank you...

Do you know specifically what the Tracking Control is doing to limit wheel spin?
For example, the R/T does not have LSD... how does it work now?

From what I read the ESP works by appling individual brakes, and controling throttle to control over/under steering... this makes sense to me.

But what I do not understand is what exactly Traction control is doing given that the car has an open differential.

The traction control uses the same technique for controlling traction by applying the brakes to each wheel.

So with that said....

Being that the car has an open differential, no LSD.... if one wheel is spinning in the mud and the other is on solid ground doing nothing, the brake would be applied to just that one wheel spinning in the mud, thereby transfering the power through the open differential to the wheel on solid ground?

Yes that is the only way for this to work without a torque sensing diff.
