Acceleration in the wet, ASR yay or nay

Throttle modulation is a bitch when roads are wet, have you guys found ASR and just matting it to be better from a dig, or can you get more out of throttle modulation?

I doubt you'll get any useful responses because of the "TURN OFF ALL THE THINGS!" crowd that's all over these forums.

Here's the reality: You have a FWD car with a bunch of torque on tap in conditions that are super low grip. Anything that widens the margin for error with your right foot is welcome. Besides, the ASR/Torque Management these days is WAAAAY better than a few generations of ECU and engines ago that would simply shut the party down.

Here's what you need to do: Just drive the car in the various settings and decide what you like better. Granted, I've done the "Increased Traction" adaptation mod to my VAQ, but I find the car much better than what some people give it credit for when I just leave all the nannies on and drive (this is for just around town, not on track or anything).
