This can be brought up in iDrive if you donít have a physical manual.

It should be easy to find and you can see how BMW explains what happens when you turn off DSC (dynamic stability control) and the car goes into DTC (dynamic traction control). It basically allows more slippage of the wheels (for various road surfaces where you want some slip & forward movement)...the car wonít engage the other part of stability control (reducing engine throttle) to help gain traction when the wheels slip.

EDIT: hereís one of the discussions of DTC from the owners manual:

So basically it still limits the power just not as much, but if I have traction control off all together then full power no computer to limit the car
