Ok, So i did the 10sec push on the VDC button last night,
as normal, the light comes on on the dash to say VDC off when you first push it.
But after 10sec the light went out.
But it would not come back on at all with a normal push, or even long push/ hold, until I had restarted the car.
I expect the long push function "locks-out" the VDC/ TC override.

I'll consult the owners manual and report back

Ditto, no warning lights or being able to turn it back on. No chance to test it though, will wait for your feedback

Yeah I forgot to mention to reset it you have to restart the car.

When you turn off TC but leave VDC on, does turning off the car reset that too?

I'd be interested how you find both settings on ruts, slick mud or soft sand

I'd expect a VDC Off Dash light after the 10-sec push.

And yes, the TC Off resets on a restart

Ok so I am back,

Went on the sand south of the Elliot River and left everything as normal, i.e. I did not not turn anything off and the car worked like magic. In the really soft soft and deep sand it just kept going the vdc cam on and went automatically, with the windows open you could hear the ABS controlling the slip I was amazed at the performance. And so was my mate in his pajero.

Any way the bash plate proved a god send. as we where leaving the national park my mate went along the left track and decided to go along the right track with the right wheel up high in the grass and the left wheel on the centre of the track. I lifted the speed a bit to gain some momentum not realising that the centre wasnt sand but fine powderery dust. As it sunk into the track the force of the dust and sand mix forced the steering to the left and up onto the left of track with such force that as I came down the bash plate landed on a rock. The two front bolts of the bash plate got ripped out

Jeez, sounds as if you would not have had a sump if you had just had the OEM splash guard on your car !

Glad that it went well otherwise.
