VSA does include TC of sorts. If it senses a wheel slipping (wheelspin) it will cut power/brake that wheel. It does not reacts as fast as dedicated TC systems, but works well enough. I was in mud (off road car park) and tested it out. With VSA off it just sat there spinning. With it on, the slip was much reduced and the car made progress.
Persoanlly, I would never turn VSA off. The one time you might need it, you might have turned it off!
Just keep it on I say, it's there to get you out of trouble should you over-cook a slippery corner of have to swerve around something (as the video demonstrates)
