I tried it in a very unscientific experiment. If I'd worked on a looser
pavement, the result might have been different. As far as I could tell,
switching to B had no effect on the anti-skid system. Did the manual say
that it was supposed to defeat this system?

Our 2002 has a different approach to wheel spin. I understand the current
model nearly shuts down power altogether when a wheel spins but the Classic
version just cuts back for a moment and tries again very quickly so it is
not intrusive. I wonder why the change?

Actually, it's the ABS/traction control, not the anti-skid (VSC)
If the spinning tire were to suddenly catch, it can put a lot of strain
on the drivetrain/transmission.

Just to make sure I'm understanding you correctly ... you live in a country
where you drive on the left-hand side of the road, so making a right turn
means you're crossing in front of oncoming traffic.
For those of us in the US, skidding to make a right turn seems like serious
