Holding the brake down and holding the tracs button for 5-10 seconds will turn off stability control. Be advised, the Mustang can go past the point of no return pretty quickly with stability control off. I recommend signing up for some auto-cross events to get better at driving the car with the the electronic controls turned off before assuming you can handle the car safely on the street without electronic intervention. Particularly while attempting "sharp corners at 5000RPM in 2nd gear"

I guess maybe the rule of thumb is that unless you are intentionally taking a turn so hard that all the tires are making lots of noise (insane on the street), the stability control should not be interfering. It only ever annoys me on the street when I am trying to get some throttle-induced rotation at low speeds. (say a right hand 90 degree turn).

If you are referring to just traction control: Yea, just turn that stuff off by momentarily pressing the tracs button.
