    If you wanna disable it, put a blown fuse in.

    If you crash (not tempting fate) and they examine the car to find out you deliberately diasbled it, you could find yourself in a lot of trouble. But how were you to know the fuse had blown? See what I mean?

    AFAIK you just gotta pull the fuse. You can have ABS without TC, but not TC without ABS.
    They reckon you actually stop quicker in the snow without ABS, but only in the snow. The idea is that the wheel locks, creates a wedge of snow in front which then acts like a chock and creates friction.
    But no one can out perform ABS in the dry or wet.
    Actually, tell a lie, some racing driver did apparently, but it took him all day of practising to do so.

    IIRC removing the fuse to disable the TC disables the power steering too ...

    Ditinctly remember this at a RR day at AMD, and the problems getting the cars into the bay with no PS !

    balls.

    i was told it was abs, not the power steering?

    i suppose if i pullit out and the power steering dont work then all i need to do is plug it back in eh?

    Yep, pulling the fuse that's behind the little glove box under the steering wheel to the right takes out ABS, traction contol and power steering.

    Good for some car-park fun but probably a bit dodgy on the road without those three!

    They all worked fine again for me when I put the fuse back in.
