I believe it doesn't even need wheel spin, it uses a Yaw sensor (and probably some other stuff, like steering wheel angle) to determine when you're having too much fun, and intervenes pre-emptively.

I don't have the rally / racing background, just an as-yet unreformed hoon, and I find the ASC in my Pajero is too sensitive - try to gently accelerate through (bitumen) bends and power at the wheels is swapped out for a flashing light on the dash.

On most dirt road trips with fellow Pajero drivers, after a stop, somebody in the convoy will normally issue a reminder over the radio: "headlights on, ASC off".

Unlike NJswb, I find the ASC on my Challenger to be excellent and only ever turn it off for low range 4wd as it does not turn off automatically like the Gen 4 Pajero. There is an easy mod you can do to the Challenger that automatically turns ASC OFF when in 4LLc or 4HLc/4LLc, I worked out how to do it years ago and never got around to doing it, but every time I get caught out forgetting to turn ASC OFF I am reminded of my tardiness..

On fast dirt in 4H, Njswb in his Gen 4 Pajero needs to have his ASC turned OFF to keep up with my Challenger with ASC ON, it is not the driver, tyres or suspension, it is the ASC programing!

Traction Control is the exact opposite, the Gen 4 Traction Control is excellent, so good it will over heat if you use too much power for too long a period, the Challengers Traction Control is woefully slow to activate and quick to deactivate, it is crap by comparison!

You could not find 2 ASCTC systems that are so different, surprisingly both from the same manufacturer.

You're too kind OJ! Even with ASC off I struggle to keep up.

I got the parts I ordered yesterday, new SCV and thanks to Jacks recommendation a fuel filter, changed over the SCV first to find the problem persisted so I swapped out the fuel filter, Bingo.
The first mechanic I saw looked in the filter and said it was fine and I took his advice and went to the dealer who services my car (and has never changed over my filter) lead me further down the sensor route.
So thanks very much OJ, youíve got me powering again, one thing I canít figure though is why the problem was intermittent.
Either the filter blockage was worse at lower temperature or the alpine fuel reacted more to the blockage?
Thanks OJ and everyone else that posted suggestions, Iíve learned a lot more about my car.
